Recep Tayyip Erdogan has secured yet another term in office, after an historic election which went to a runoff. The Turkish leader fought back a tough challenge from opposition candidate Kemal Kilicdaroglu.
Ultra-nationalist Sinan Ogan has thrown his support behind the incumbent in the runoff vote. He had previously called for all refugees to be deported as one of his demands for an endorsement.
Turkey is set for a second round of voting for the first time ever after neither Recep Tayyip Erdogan nor Kemal Kilicdaroglu secured an absolute majority.
More Turkish people living abroad have reportedly cast their vote compared to the last election in 2018. But the vote has reflected polarization in the diapsora over their support of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
Some 1.5 million Turkish citizens in Germany are eligible to vote in their country's presidential and parliamentary elections, with 16 ballot stations approved by the German government.
