Turkiye entered into a state of electoral silence this evening, ahead of tomorrow's local elections.
According to Article 49 of Law No. 298 regarding the basic provisions for elections and voter records, the electoral campaigning period begins 10 days ahead of election day and ends at 18:00 on the prior day, unleashing the electoral silence.
Held every 5 years, Turkish local elections are of great significance, particularly in the major municipalities of Istanbul, Ankara, and Izmir.
Held on a single day, local elections will see more than 61 million Turks cast their votes in the ballot boxes, with preliminary results announced on the same day, followed by the election petitions stage and the issuance of the final results.
The Supreme Election Council announced earlier that 36 Turkish parties are entitled to participate in these elections.
