#Erdogan’s nightmare has become a reality.
Viva @ekrem_imamoglu
Viva #Istanbul
#Erdogan tried every trick in the book, from flirting with #PKK’s Oclean, to liken @ekrem_imamoglu to #Egypt’s Sisi.
All failed.
#Imamoglu won.
Erdoganistan is officially in twilight!
#Erdogan made a major error of judgment when he ordered Istanbul re-run election.
Now, he may now try to portray himself as a democrat, but it is too late. The people of #Istanbul are the true abd BRAVE Democrats.
•Opposition #Imamoglu won 53% of vote
•Gap between him & Erdogan’s candidate, which was only 13 K votes in first round, extended to 800 K.
•He won even the most conservative districts in istanbul: Uskudar, Fatih, Eyüp as @WashingtonPoint wrote
#Turkey’s problem was not an oppressed public but a deluded one. Finally, public turned against #Erdogan. That is a huge reboot of Turkish politics. If the Sultan opted for more oppressive tactics, he will end up killing his Islamist project completely.
My fears for @ekrem_imamoglu
•Safety: He is vulnerable now to revenge attacks from Erdogan’s fan club
•Authority: #Erdogan can change law to limit mayors’ authorties.
•Legal challenges: Erdogan accused him of insulting a provincial governor.
•CHP: Will opposition stay united?
More wow...
#Imamoglu doubles Erdoğan's vote, breaks record of 35 years!!!
