Local elections were held in Turkey last Sunday. Turkish President Erdogan called the election a victory for democracy.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan addressed supporters of the Justice and Development Party (AK Party) outside the AK Party headquarters in Ankara on Monday (April 2).

He thanked them for their support and the spread of democracy in the country. Addressing supporters, Erdogan said, “The nation has shown its will in the ballot without facing any obstacles.” This is a great victory for Turkish democracy.

The President of Turkey said, “We have completed the March 31 elections with maturity suitable for our democracy.” No untoward incident happened in the election.

Erdogan also said, “Thank you for the common sense of our citizens. Turkey’s democracy has once again proved its maturity. Elections are the most important day of democracy and people express their choice through ballots.

It is seen as the biggest defeat for President Erdogan and his AK Party in more than two decades.

Erdogan was the mayor of his hometown Istanbul in the 1990s. This time, his main goal was to regain his place. But he failed in that.

Addressing a crowd gathered at the AKP headquarters in the capital Ankara after the defeat, Erdogan said, “If we have made a mistake, we will try to fix it.” If we have any deficiency we will fill it. The team will learn from the defeat, he also gave such a message to the supporters after the result.
