Türkiye will hold a second-round runoff on May 28 to elect the president after no candidate won an outright majority in Sunday’s poll, the head of the nation’s election authority announced on Monday.

The first round of voting ended with no candidate able to clear the required 50% threshold, but incumbent Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan took the lead, said Ahmet Yener, head of the Supreme Election Council, citing unofficial results.

Voter turnout in Sunday’s elections was 88.92%, with turnout from Turkish citizens abroad at 52.69%, Yener said.
