Turkey’s Supreme Election Council (YSK) on early Monday (June 25) announced President Recep Tayyip Erdogan won absolute majority in presidential election as 97.7 percent of ballot boxes were opened.

Speaking hours after Sunday’s presidential and parliamentary elections, YSK head Sadi Guven said Justice and Development (AK) Party, Republican People’s Party (CHP), Nationalist Movement Party (MHP), Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP) and Good (IYI) Party surpass 10 percent threshold in the parliamentary election.

Sadi said the remaining uncounted votes will not affect election results.

Earlier on Sunday, Erdogan declared his success in Turkey’s historic presidential and parliamentary elections.

His ruling AK Party is also leading in parliamentary elections, with 42.4 percent of the vote counted.

Along with the MHP, the AK Party’s election ally, the People’s Alliance has won 53.6 percent of the vote so far.
