Al-Arab newspaper: Erdogan provoked voters who punished him with multi-faceted messages
On the Turkish elections, the newspaper said: "The defeat of the Istanbul mayor in the run-off as a direct message to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan that the time of his victories is over, and that the Turkish people no longer likes his slogans and promises after the accumulation of economic, political and security crises in the country.
Istanbul's course was not as what the Turkish president had planned, and on the contrary he seemed to be dragging himself to the bottom. He made a classic mistake by provoking people to reveal his weakness more than he had expected. His rejection of a symbolic defeat in the first round revealed a selfish personality that wanted to puts everything under its control.
The first vote was punitive and a sign of anger from the Turkish street over Erdogan, who put the country in a state of hostility with its outside perimeter for personal gain. But after disrupting the results of the first round, the people of Istanbul rushed to punish him more clearly and with a multifaceted message, and in protest against him personally, his candidate and the closest politicians to him, and the failure to respect previous results.
Erdogan's party suffered a humiliating defeat on Sunday, with opposition candidate Akram İmamoğlu winning the run-off election for Istanbul's mayor, by a wide margin over his rival ruling party candidate Ben Ali Yildirim.
