Erdogan's Party Calls for New Elections in Istanbul

Hürriyet Daily

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's Justice and Development Party, known as AKP, is asking the country's election council for a redo of the mayoral election in Istanbul, the country's financial capital and its largest city, CNN reports. 

Claiming "organized irregularities," the party has for weeks contested the results of the March 31 election, which it appears to have lost by a razor-thin margin.
"There isn't a tiny bit of problem in the process," said CHP candidate Ekrem İmamoglu. "Before the elections, they said Turkey has the world's most trustworthy election system. Today they shout 'there are irregularities."
The YSK now will decide whether to give the mandate to İmamoglu in Istanbul or to hold new elections June 2.
