Turkish local elections: President Erdogan takes heavy losses in major cities
The results so far show that Erdogan's Justice and Development Party has lost a collective 8% when compared to the previous elections which were held in 2019.

Local elections have come to a close in Turkey, and after counting a large percentage of the votes, it would appear that the candidates from the opposition party have defeated those representing President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in the major cities.

According to preliminary results, Istanbul, Ismir, and Ankara will all remain in the hands of the opposition, despite Erdogan's attempts to seize Istanbul. After counting 60% of the votes in Istanbul, it would seem that incumbent Mayor Ekrem İmamoğlu will defeat the president's candidate by nine points.
