Turkiye elections - Erdogan suffers a stunning defeat

So apparently over there mayoral elections are a huge deal - suppose like our midterms and Erdogan’s party did very badly

Don’t know much about the opposition but if they are secular and not islamist, can’t be a bad thing, right ?

The results are a significant blow for Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who had hoped to regain control of the cities less than a year after he claimed a third term as president.

He led the campaign to win in Istanbul, where he grew up and became mayor.

But Ekrem Imamoglu, who first won the city in 2019, scored a second victory for the secular opposition CHP.
