KABUL: Leaders from around the world including Former President Hamid Karzai and Former Chief Executive Dr. Abdullah Abdullah Officer of Afghanistan congratulated Recep Tayyib Erdogan after he won another term. While expressing congratulatory to Erdogan on his election activities, they wished him peace and prosperity for the people of Turkiye. Dr. Abdullah Abdullah former Chief Executive Officer stated that Turkiye and Afghanistan are historical friends and allies and Turkiye has always stood by the people of Afghanistan during difficult times. According to Anka news agency, 98.77 percent of votes have been counted, of which Recep Tayyib Erdogan has won 52.02% while his rival Kilicdaroglu received 47.98% of votes. The Turkish electoral authority declared Erdogan the winner of the election which will see him secure another five-year term. The world leaders including the U.S. President Joe Biden, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelenskyy, Pakistani Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, NATO, and European Union sent separate congratulatory messages to Erdogan on his winning the elections. Following the victory announcement, President Erdogan spoke to his supporters, saying voters had given him the responsibility of governing for the next five years. While thanking the voters Erdogan said “The only winner today is Turkiye” and mockingly said goodbye to his arch-rival, Kemal Kilicdaroglu. On the contrary, his rival Kilicdaroglu who received 47.98% of votes describe the votes as “the most unfair election in the year”. Erdogan’s voter base is “devoted to him in a way that looks beyond the economic challenges facing the country,” DW correspondent reported. Erdogan still enjoys immense popularity among the majority of people in Turkiye for his services. His 20-yearlong reign in power has allowed him to control the government establishment in his favor quite effectively. S. Raqib
