President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan announced that Türkiye’s elections will be held on May 14 – a month earlier than scheduled – according to a video shared by his office Sunday.
Erdoğan, who plans to seek reelection, made the announcement during a Saturday youth conference in northwestern Bursa province. A video of the event was released Sunday.
“I am grateful to God that we will be walking side by side with you, our first-time voting youth, in the elections that will be held on May 14,” Erdoğan told the group.
He said he would make the formal call on March 10, after which Türkiye’s Supreme Election Council (YSK) would prepare for the elections.
“This is not an early election, this is bringing forward the elections.”
