Kemal Kilicdaroglu, the leader of the opposition, declared that he will keep fighting until Turkey has "real democracy" while speaking at the Ankara headquarters of his party. He described it as Turkey's "most unfair election period" ever.
"This was the most unfair election period in our history," Kilicdaroglu added. We refused to submit to the atmosphere of terror. Despite all the difficulties, the electorate's desire to overthrow an authoritarian administration was evident in this election. He emphasised that "the hard days ahead for our country" are what makes him said.
