Election officials have thrown out the result of the vote for the mayor of Istanbul, which was won by opposition candidate Ekrem Imamoglu, of the Republican People's Party. Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan had suffered a humiliating defeat in the vote and pressured the Supreme Electoral Council into nullifying the vote. His ruling AK party won the local elections overall, but lost key mayoral polls in Istanbul and Ankara. His party then challenged the legitimacy of the results. A new round of voting will be held on June 23. The defeated candidate, Binali Yildirim has, of course, welcomed the news.
