After its cancellation, a pro-Kurdish candidate wins Türkiye’s local elections


The Supreme Electoral Council approved the victory of the candidate of the Equality and Peoples’ Democracy Party, the largest pro-Kurdish party in Turkey, for the presidency of the municipality in the city of Van (east), after his election was annulled in favor of a candidate for the ruling party, his party reported on Wednesday.

The party filed an appeal on Wednesday before the Supreme Electoral Council to protest the invalidation of its candidate’s victory in Van, the major city with a Kurdish majority located near the border with Iran.

The Supreme Election Commission in Turkey granted the mayoral mandate of Van to the losing Justice and Development Party candidate in the local elections that took place on March 31, instead of the winning Equality and Peoples’ Democracy Party candidate in the elections.

After popular protests and legal objections, Turkey’s Supreme Election Commission re-delegated the mayorship of Van to the Equality and Peoples’ Democracy Party candidate, Abdullah Zidane, who won the local elections.

The joint mayoral candidates from the Equality and Peoples’ Democracy Party received 55.48 percent of the votes. While the Justice and Development Party candidate received 27.15 percent of the votes. (Sky News)
