Turkey, my country, is a lost cause. After all the things happening since June 2013 (killing of 9 peope, proven allegations of corruption, violation of human rights and freedoms,) AKP still gets 45% of the votes.
However, a part of the votes are stolen or manipulated. AKP officials shut down the electricity for hours in nearly every town where CHP is leading the race. There are eyewitness reports from all over the country that voting attendants turned CHP votes into AKP votes/or didn’t count CHP votes properly/burned the vote papers, especially in Ankara and Istanbul. You can see how close the race was in Ankara, the capital of the country.
Please reblog this or at least talk about this one of your friends or your family so people would know what we are dealing with. Firm believers in democracy slept on bags full of votes last night because they were afraid that some people would steal them before they are counted. I believe both Mustafa Sarıgül (CHP/Istanbul) & Mansur Yavaş (CHP/Ankara) won the elections by close votes, and it is killing me knowing that we actually won the elections first time in 13 years, and they didn’t count our votes.
