He stated, “The fact that the 14 May elections took place in the form of a great feast of democracy with peace and tranquility is an expression of the democratic maturity of our Turkey. While the election was held in such a positive and democratic atmosphere and the vote counting is still going on, trying to announce results hastily means a usurpation of the national will.
We are pleased that the favor of our nation is reflected in the ongoing vote count. I ask all my friends and colleagues to stay at the ballot boxes, no matter what until the results are officially finalized. I congratulate all my citizens who voted in the name of democracy and took part in the election work, and I express my gratitude to each and every one of them.”
