Türkiye’s Presidential Election Results
Türkiye has completed its pivotal presidential elections, with nearly 54 million individuals casting their votes. Erdogan secured 52% of the votes, earning him another presidential term. The question that stands at the forefront is: what were the key factors behind Erdogan’s success? What are the messages that the Turkish electorate sought to convey through their votes? Going forward, what will be the nature of the relationship between the legislative and executive branches in the wake of these results? And what will be the implications for domestic and international policy?
The SETA Foundation at Washington DC is pleased to convene a panel of experts to shed light on the Turkish presidential election results, evaluate the candidates’ performance since the first round, and discuss policy implications.
