Must read

Polling stations opened Sunday in Turkey’s first-ever runoff election, where conservative President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan is the firm favorite to extend his two decades of Islamic-rooted rule to 2028, Agence France-Presse reported.

Voting began at 8:00 am (0500 GMT) and will close at 5:00 pm. Erdoğan won the first round on May 14 but fell just short of an outright majority against his secular challenger Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu.
