In some countries, such as Ireland, the USA, England, Canada and Japan, where Kılıçdaroğlu received high votes in the first round, the second round voting process was limited to two days by the YSK. In countries such as Belgium, Austria, Netherlands and Germany, where Erdoğan received high votes, voting will take five days.
Following the presidential election’s second round, the voting dates abroad, which were announced as 20-24 May before the election, were changed in some countries.
While it is foreseen that the ballot boxes will remain open for five days in election centers abroad, in some countries where Nation Alliance candidate Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu received high votes, the voting day was limited to only two days.
COUNTRIES WHERE ERDOĞAN RECEIVES HIGH VOTES
It was announced that the voting process abroad would start on May 20 and end on May 24. Accordingly, in countries such as Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands and France, where the candidate of the People’s Alliance, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, received 60 percent or more of the vote in the first round, voting will take place between these dates in the centers where ballot boxes were previously set up.
However, the voting process in polling stations in some countries such as the USA, Ireland, England, Canada, Australia and Japan, where the presidential candidate of the Nation Alliance, Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu, received more than 60 percent of the vote, was limited to two days.
Kılıçdaroğlu received 86.7 percent of the votes in Ireland, 80.4 percent in the USA, 79.7 percent in Canada, 79 percent in England, and 61.7 percent in Japan in the first round elections. In all of these countries, the voting process will take two days.
PORTUGAL 24 HOURS
In Portugal, where the Nation Alliance’s Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu received 91 percent of the vote in the first round, voting was limited to only one day. In the statement made by the Lisbon Emby, it was stated that “The second round of the presidential election will be held at the ballot boxes to be set up in our emby between 08:00 and 22:00 on 23 May.”
OBJECTION FROM CHP
CHP announced that it will object to the decision to shorten the voting period for the second round in the USA and Canada, where support for Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu is intense.
The Supreme Election Board (YSK) announced that voting will take place between 20-24 May at the customs gates and abroad.
The Turkish embies in Washington and Ottawa announced that the voting period in the second round of the presidential election will be on May 20-21 and will last only two days.
The CHP’s US Representative, Yurter Özcan, announced on Twitter that they would appeal the decision. Özcan said, “Today, we will object to the YSK regarding the shortening of voting days in countries such as the USA, Canada and England, which received very high votes for our President. For your information,” he said.
