  • Supporters at Mr Erdogan's rally

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan claimed victory in the country's presidential election on Sunday, citing unofficial election results.

Erdoğan received 52.6 percent in the election.

Election board chief Sadi Guven said officials were taking "administrative and judicial initiatives" over reported security problems as people voted in Sanliurfa, in the country's southeast, according to Turkey's state-run Anadolu news agency.

"I accept these election results", said Muharrem Ince of the Republican People's Party (CHP) who came second to Erdogan in the polls but had launched an energetic challenge in the campaign.

CNN reports that Erdogan declared himself the victor before the results were announced, leading to opposition claims that "state media and the election commission had manipulated the results and saying it was too early to be sure of the outcome".

The main opposition party did not immediately concede defeat.

"The results show that the AK Party-MHP alliance will have to continue for Erdogan to carry out his executive presidency comfortably", he said.

Police fired warning shots to stop a speeding auto in Suruc, where they found four bags full of stamped ballot papers, according to the Dogan News Agency.

AK Party supporters clogged a main road in the capital Ankara leading to party headquarters honking horns in celebration.

This means his party is short of a parliamentary majority and will need to negotiate deals with allies in order to control the 600-seat house. Critics say it is a blatant power grab and pushes Turkey closer to authoritarian rule.

Heather Locklear Arrested for Battery on Police Officer, EMT
Additionally, Locklear and ex-fiance Jack Wagner were ordered to appear in court in 2012 after an alleged violent fight. In February, she was charged with one count of domestic violence and three counts of battery on emergency personnel.

Other presidential candidates include Selahattin Demirtas, leader of the pro-Kurdish Peoples Democratic Party (HDP), who is now in jail on terrorism-related charges that he denies. The office of prime minister will be abolished and Erdogan will be able to issue decrees to form and regulate ministries and remove civil servants, all without parliamentary approval. In early trading in Asia the lira currency firmed modestly versus the dollar on hopes of increased political stability.

But furious opposition supporters insisted the result was illegitimate after a video emerged on Twitter which appeared to show a ballot box being stuffed with voting slips in the south eastern town of Urfa. They have said election law changes and fraud allegations in the 2017 referendum raise fears about the fairness of the ballots.

His ruling Justice and Development Party garnered 42.5 percent of the parliamentary vote.

She and others in the city said they voted for the pro-Kurdish HDP, hoping it would exceed the 10 per cent threshold of votes needed to enter parliament.

Turkey's High Electoral Board declared Erdogan, 64, the victor of Sunday's polls, which usher in a new executive presidential system that was approved in a referendum previous year.

At Sensipasa Elementary School in the Uskudar neighbourhood of Istanbul, CHP supporters answered the call.

The vote has also ushered in an executive presidency system giving Mr Erdogan sweeping new powers.

Erdogan has declared himself an "enemy of interest rates", raising fears he will pressure the central bank to cut borrowing costs after the election despite double-digit inflation. Earlier, he accused Anadolu Agency of reporting votes from areas that favored Erdogan to undermine opposition morale.

But critics accuse him of ruling with an iron grip, especially after the July 2016 failed coup which was followed by a state of emergency that has seen tens of thousands arrested. President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's government dominated the media, abused access to all government and municipal resources, and benefited from a state of emergency in suppressing the opposition campaign.
