Erdogan's party appeals for annulment of Istanbul local elections

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s AK Party (AKP) has appealed to annul local elections in Istanbul after initial results showed the opposition won a narrow victory in the city.

The AKP office in Istanbul’s Buyukcekmece district had appealed to the provincial electoral office to annul the vote across the city due to what it said was illegal voter registrations in the district, broadcaster Haberturk reported.

Since Sunday’s vote the AKP has submitted objections to the results, saying they had been impacted by irregularities.
