Delhi, 29 May (CNI) : Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan Won Re-election on Sunday, the head of Turkey’s Supreme Election Council (YSK) announced on Sunday, declaring Erdogan the winner of a historic runoff vote that is set to extend his 20-year rule until 2028.

With 99.43% of the votes counted, preliminary official results announced by Turkey’s Supreme Election Council (YSK) on Sunday showed Erdogan winning with 52.14% of the votes. Kilicdaroglu received 47.86%.

Speaking to thousands of his supporters outside the presidential complex in Ankara, Erdogan said that now was the time to “put aside all the debates and conflicts regarding the election period and unite around our national goals and dreams.”

“The only winner today is Turkey,” Erdogan said. He promised to work hard for Turkey’s second century. The country marks its centennial this year.
