Turkey Scraps Election Results After Erdogan's Candidate Loses

Reuters reports Turkish authorities on Monday scrapped the result of a vote for Istanbul mayor lost by President Tayyip Erdogan’s candidate.

They were responding to calls by his AK Party for a re-run.

It is a move that hit the lira and drew opposition accusations of “dictatorship.” The High Election Board ruled that a fresh Istanbul mayoral contest will be held on June 23.
