The official results showed Erdogan’s rival Kemal Kilicdaroglu won 47.9% of the vote against Erdogan’s 52.1%, indicating a deeply divided nation, the Afghan news agency said.

“The elections were considered one of the most important for Turkey, as the opposition believed that they had a great chance to overthrow Erdogan and change his policies after his popularity was hit by the economic crisis. But instead, Erdogan bolstered his image as an invincible politician by reshaping domestic and foreign policy in a NATO member country of 85 million people.” – writes the agency.
