An “unpublished” opinion poll revealed the identity of the winner of the Turkish presidential elections to be held on May 14, in which President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is competing in particular with the candidate of the Six-Party Table Alliance, Kamal Kılıçdaroğlu.

The Supreme Council for Elections prohibits conducting or publishing opinion polls for the presidential or parliamentary elections during the remaining ten days of the elections, whether through written, audio-visual media or by telephone.

Turkish journalist Abdulkadir Selvi said that he obtained the results of a “secret” opinion poll showing that the presidential elections will be decided in the first round, indicating that the turnout could set a record in the country’s history.

According to what was published by the Hurriyet newspaper, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan will end the presidential elections in his favor in the first round only, without resorting to a second round, which means that he will win 50 + 1 in the first ballot.

The writer explained: “Erdogan will get 52 percent of the vote in the first round of the elections,” noting that the “record” electoral rally (1.7 million people) of supporters of the Turkish president in Istanbul reveals this.

Although previous opinion polls for the Republican People’s Party, headed by Kamal Kilchdar Oglu, showed the progress of the six-party table candidate by 60 percent, the percentage dropped to 51 percent days before the elections, according to the newspaper.

The newspaper expected that the participation rate in the Turkish elections would not be less than 90 percent, which increases the possibility of deciding the results in the first round.

According to the Supreme Elections Committee, the number of those eligible to vote reached 64,113,941 voters, of whom 3,416,089 voters cast their ballots from outside the country, and they are expatriates.

According to the Supreme Elections Committee, four million 904 thousand and 672 voters will participate in the elections for the first time. Of them, 277 thousand and 646 live abroad.
