The biggest election fraud ever in Turkey's history?

Initial reports:

Sunday, November 1, 2015 10:30 PM

HDP data processing attendant Haluk Ağabeyoğlu said Turkey has witnessed the biggest fraud of its history at November 1 election.

Speaking to ANF, Ağabeyoğlu said Turkish Supreme Election Board (YSK) announced the election results yet before the delivery of the voting papers to the provincial Election Board Consolidation Centre in many regions of Istanbul. He stated that in some districts of Istanbul, the procedure of consolidation of result reports was carried out at schools rather that district Election Board Consolidation Centres.


Haluk Ağabeyoğlu recalled the normal procedure, saying; "People can cast their votes till 17:00, after which polls close and votes are counted. The voting papers are later put in bags and taken to the affiliated district election board together with result reports. According to the law, votes and reports are compiled at district election board before their delivery to the YSK. However, YSK announced the results for many regions of Istanbul yet before the transfer of the voting papers to the district election board. In some districts like Beşiktaş, the result reports were consolidated at schools and submitted to YSK without being delivered to the district election board. This is purely unlawful."


Ağabeyoğlu also called attention to simple polling frauds through an altering of the numbers of counted votes, like writing 3 instead of 30 or vice versa, which -he said- caused a huge difference between the votes they counted and those announced by YSK.

Ağabeyoğlu described this difference as not a mistake but rather a fraud, stressing that today's election has witnessed the biggest fraud ever in Turkey's history. He added that lawyers have raised an objection to the results in many areas.
