Erdogan Backs Re-Run Of Istanbul Vote After His Party Loses

According to a report by Reuters, on Tuesday, Turkey's main opposition party said that its candidate for Istanbul mayor would again contest and win the post, after the election board ordered a re-run of the vote.

President Tayyip Erdogan reportedly pushed hard for the re-run after his ruling AK Party lost control of Turkey’s biggest city in the March 31 poll.
