Preliminary observations on #TurkeyElections:
1) The opposition (#Nation bloc) making major gains, including the capital Ankara & Antalya.
2) HDP proved to be kingmakers - swayed votes to the #Nation bloc.
3) AKP losing significant votes & mayors to its #Peoples bloc partner MHP.
Preliminary prediction on #TurkeyElections: AKP cadres have seen that #Erdoğan's strategy of framing the elections around the theme "existential threat" has backfired, and will start complaining of losing votes, municipalities, & spoils to their ultranationalist partner #MHP.
Of #Turkey's 12 largest cities, the opposition is winning at least 7: #Ankara, #İzmir, #Adana, #Antalya, #Mersin, #Eskişehir, & #Diyarbakır. The largest city #Istanbul is a toss-up! #Bursa, too, is too close to call. AKP is losing Turkey's economic power houses. #TurkeyElections

🇹🇷 Elections locales en #Turquie dans un climat économique très dégradé par rapport aux présidentielles et aux législatives de juin 2018. economist.com/europe/2019/01…
🇹🇷 Dans ce contexte, l'opposition espère faire basculer plusieurs villes majeures :

➡️#Ankara, où @mansuryavas06 du #CHP (centre-gauche laïque) semble bien placé pour l'emporter
➡️#Istanbul, où @ekrem_imamoglu (CHP) est au coude-à-coude dans les sondages avec @BA_Yildirim (AKP)
🇹🇷 La troisième ville du pays, #Izmir, est un bastion du CHP et devrait le rester, mais l'opposition CHP+İYİ (nationaliste laïque) espère aussi gagner les grandes métropoles d'#Adana, #Bursa ou #Antalya et de nombreuses villes moyennes.

Living through first local elections in #Turkey After 32 years!!! The dynamics & methods are so different than US- In some ways cute & funny. Every 15 min Painted vans blasting music for each different party passing by my house!!! My dog’s been going nuts for the past 14 days!!!
The District Head showed up at my door this morning (at 8!)- gave me all the documentations and location for info for the voting boots. I am so Not used to this. Very interesting. Very different!!!
When compared with USA the cost of running for office is sooooo much lower. TV spots not in the equation. Volunteers, a few painted-postered vans making rounds, and yes: music, music, music.

If you are traveling to Istanbul & Antalya, or are interested in traveling, this might interest you.

1) Istanbul Card is a bliss. It costs 6 Liras and with a top-up of 15 more, it is best to get around.

2) Avoid taksi (taxis). They are exorbitant

3) If you are a museum person and are going to check out major ones then get the Fast Track pass (125 Liras). If not, just buy the regular tickets at museums/palaces you are interested in.

4) Basilica Cisterna is not a part of the above-mentioned pass.

#Istanbul
5) As a vegetarian/vegan, tons of food options! My breakfast is usually a crunchy simit/ acma with cheese.

6) Wear jeans + Half-sleeved tee + carry a scarf for Blue Mosque. Men, tee+ jeans. Or you can get a covering skirt/covering cloth + scarf for free at the mosque
