I am sorry if you have answered this, but from the coverage here it looks like a bad result for Erdogan, with his AKP losing control of Ankara and (probably) Istanbul. Is that a reasonable summary?
https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-48190351BBC said:Turkey vote: Erdogan faces criticism over Istanbul re-run
Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is facing international outcry over a decision to re-run the Istanbul mayoral election, which his party lost.
The European Union called on Turkey's electoral body to explain the controversial decision "without delay".
Germany's Foreign Minister Heiko Mass called the rerun "incomprehensible".
Mr Erdogan was also criticised by the French government and by Belgian MEP Guy Verhofstadt, who said Turkey was "drifting towards dictatorship".
The president's ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) last month lost the mayorship of Turkey's biggest city by a narrow margin, but Mr Erdogan has refused to accept defeat.
The decision to hold a new vote on 23 June sparked protests across Istanbul on Monday. Hundreds of people gathered in several districts, banging pots and pans and shouting anti-government slogans.
Solly Zuckerman recounted a story in which one of McNamara’s Assistant Secretaries said to him ‘Don’t you see … First we need enough Minutemen to be sure that we destroy all those Russian cities. Then we need Polaris missiles to follow in order to tear up the foundations to a depth of ten feet, maybe helped by Skybolt … Then, when all Russia is silent, and when no air defences are left, we want waves of aircraft to drop enough bombs to tear the whole place up down to a depth of forty feet to prevent the Martians recolonising the country. And to hell with the fallout.’
The threat was from the Kremlin, from the men whose bold conspiracy to commit nuclear blackmail had been exposed to the world by aerial photographs displayed in the United Nations: the threat was from these gamblers whose hands had now been called, these neo-Orientals with "face" to be maintained. John Kennedy had told them, in effect, "Get your offensive missiles out of Cuba now, or we will land and destroy them."
For Erdogan, the Bill for Debt-Fueled Growth Comes Due
President Recep Tayyip Erdogan borrowed aggressively to deliver on promises of economic growth, and inflation followed.
Istanbul voters’ rebuke of his party signaled mounting despair over the economic disaster he oversaw.
PAY DEBNETS !!!!
Dont worry the US is also headed for a taxcut, borrowing economic recession as well
