Turkish Opposition Candidate Declared Winner of Disputed Istanbul Vote

Reuters

Turkey's main opposition candidate was declared Istanbul's mayor Wednesday after election recounts were completed, despite an appeal still pending by President Tayyip Erdogan's party to re-run the vote, France24 reports. 

Initial results from the March 31 local elections gave a narrow victory to the main opposition Republican People's Party (CHP) in Turkey's commercial hub, ending 25 years of control by the AK Party (AKP) and its Islamist predecessors.

New CHP mayor Ekrem Imamoglu was handed a paper, mounted in a gold frame, which formally granted his mandate as city mayor in a ceremony at an Istanbul court which was surrounded by a throng of supporters.
