All members of the Central Executive Council of the Turkish opposition “Republican People’s Party” resigned in response to the request of the head of the party, Kamal Kılıçdaroğlu.
An RT correspondent in Turkey reported that the resignation occurred after a meeting of members of the Central Executive Council with the chairman of the party and his candidate, Kamal Kılıçdaroğlu, who lost in the presidential election.
The losing candidate will run a new campaign, including new appointments to replace those who have resigned, to soften criticism of the party, as Kılıçdaroğlu does not appear to be leaving the leadership of the Republican People’s Party.
On Thursday, the Turkish High Electoral Commission released the final results of the second round of the presidential elections held on May 28.
According to a statement from the Higher Electoral Commission, the objections have been eliminated and the final results of the second round of the presidential elections have been sent to the Official Gazette for announcement.
In the second round of the presidential elections, 52,093,375 local voters voted, which is 85.72%.
In the final results of the presidential elections, Recep Tayyip Erdogan won 52.18 percent of the vote, while Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu received 47.82 percent of the vote.
The first round of elections took place on 14 May 2023 with Erdogan receiving 49.52% of the Turkish vote compared to 44.48% for Kılıçdaroğlu, necessitating a runoff on 28 May when Erdoğan won a new term lasting until 2028.
