08 April, 12:27

    (ANSAmed) - ISTANBUL, APRIL 8 - The contested mayoral election in Ankara officially closed on Monday in favour of CHP opposition candidate Mansur Yavas, following a partial recount of about 125,000 votes obtained by the AKP party of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

    On Monday morning, Yavas showed journalists a certificate attesting to his election as mayor, thus taking power in the Turkish capital away from Erdogan's political forces after 25 years.

    Meanwhile in Istanbul, a partial recount of annulled votes from the March 31 mayoral election is still underway, and AKP has requested a total recount.(ANSAmed).
