Turkey is going to the polls on Sunday, voting simultaneously in parliamentary and presidential elections for the first time in the country’s history.
More than 56 million voters will be able to cast their ballots in more than 180.000 ballot boxes across Turkey.
President Recep Tayyip Erdogan will be looking for a first round knockout and an overall majority for his ruling Justice and Development Party.
But both these goals are in doubt in the face of an energetic campaign by his rival from the secular Republican People’s Party, Muharrem Ince.
Here are the latest developments:
Polls open for 2018 presidential and parliamentary elections
- The presidential and parliamentary elections are kicking off (05:00 GMT) across the country.
- Polls will close at 14:00 GMT, with preliminary results expected at 17:00 GMT. Official results will not be out for a few days.
