How is “Organized Irregularities” Defined, actually? I still think this is neither good or wise. Not good at all.
#TurkeyElections: I have said it, and will say it again. This is WRONG. This will backfire. Especially during this critical period this is the last thing #Turkey needs. - - - “Erdogan's party to demand total recount Istanbul ballots@ is.gd/1WNgAD

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

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.

#SRO| ANALYSIS - Now years ago, #SRO was the first to warn how #Turkey was creating a new "Northern #Cyprus" in N-#Syria. All facts now confirming it : many roads and buildings in #Bab pocket now linked to #Kilis province (1).
#SRO | ANALYSIS - The #Turkey army, under military diktat or under #AKP full powers, is applying exactly the same steps : "protecting" a population (turks in #Cyprus, reinstalling turkmensin N-#Syria) and installing military bases (2).
#SRO | ANALYSIS - Next step, as in #Cyprus in early 80', is now beginning in #Bab pocket : turning the area into a full protectorate, erasing former evidences of previous #state (#Syria in #Bab pocket, #Cyprus in N-#Cyprus) (3).
