Turkey elections to be held on May 14 – Erdogan


YEREVAN, JANUARY 23, ARTSAKHPRESS. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Turkey would hold elections on May 14, a month earlier than scheduled.

President Erdogan’s office released video footage on Sunday of Erdogan announcing the date during a meeting with young voters in the northwestern province of Bursa late on Saturday.

“I am grateful to god that we will be walking side by side with you, our first-time voting youth, in the elections that will be held on May 14,” Reuters quoted Erdogan as saying during the meeting.  

Turkey’s presidential and parliamentary elections were scheduled to be held on June 18 but President Erdogan previously signalled that the vote could be brought forward.
