Elections in turkey 2023 the results are unpredictable

Only half a percent was not enough for Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the current president of Turkey, to win the elections, in connection with which the second round will be held on May 28.

If one of the candidates had received an absolute majority of votes, that is, more than 50%, then the elections could be held in one round.

Parliamentary elections were held on the same day. The composition of the parliament of the 28th convocation of Turkey is 64% of new faces.

Opposition candidate Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu promises to deport all illegal migrants from Turkey. There are 3.3 million Syrians in the country. Also, the public was stirred up by statements that a ban on the sale of real estate to foreigners would be introduced, as a rescue for constantly rising prices for it. By the way, only 4% of transactions in the country are carried out with the participation of foreigners. But such changes were not approved in Parliament.

And the price cuts that buyers from the category of pent-up demand are waiting for will not happen. The season starts in Turkey, traditionally at this time the number of transactions with foreign buyers is growing.

The second round of elections on May 28 will be held between two candidates — Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Kemal Kilicdaroglu. May 29 will be a public holiday in Turkish schools.
