Wrapping Up #Turkey #IstanbulReElection & Moving On: The Democratic Process Went Smoothly This Time- No Incident Peaceful Voting-Counting Process. Now Back to Geopolitics & Economy: #S400 #Syria #Russia #EastMedDrill #F35 #NATO #USA
1 interesting observation here on the ground in #Turkey post #IstanbulReElection?- Seeing (rearing,Watching) how the coward, spineless, two-faced incompetent #Turkey #MSM Pundits so quickly switched side, & all of a sudden started criticizing #AKP. Little cowards with no spine.
There are those of us (a minute minority) in media who remain true to the facts- thrive for objectivity no matter who is up, who’s down; no matter which party or figure. Then, there are those (Majority) who suck up & follow whichever way the wind blows. The little cowards.😉😉😉

#Istanbul #Reelection Today- ~6 hrs left to polls closing. High stakes. Hoping for a smooth, Democratic & peaceful process. It will be an intense evening count. I’ll report updates periodically. Reporting on the ground from #Turkey @sibeledmonds
#IstanbulReelection- 39 Districts, 10,560,963 Votes. That’s a lot of votes to count! Down to 2 Mayoral candidates: Ruling Party #AKP candidate Yıldırım vs Main Opposition Party #CHP Candidate İmamoğlu. Polls will close at 5:00 pm here (in ~6 hours).
Over 1/3 of #Turkey’s population lives in #Istanbul. A good chunk of national GDP & many many billion dollars District budget for the elected #Mayor. #AKP lost in mayoral elections of biggest cities: #Ankara, #Izmir & #Antalya, with #Istanbul as the “hottest tamale” TBD today.
