  • Erdogan opens Turkey's largest mosque in Istanbul

The 63,000-capacity mosque on Istanbul's Camlica Hill in the Asian side of the city was opened by Erdogan for Friday prayer. The AK Party representative on the board, Recep Ozel, said the decision was based on unsigned results documents from the March 31 election and on some ballot box officials not being civil servants.

Ekrem Imamoglu, of the main opposition Republican People's Party (CHP), took oath as mayor of Istanbul, Turkey's largest city by population.

The party did not request a rerun of the election for Istanbul's local assembly, in which it won a majority of seats.

It has proposed forming a working group with Washington to assess the impact of the S-400s, but says it has not received a response yet.

"This system that overrules the will of the people and disregards the law is neither democratic nor legitimate", he wrote on Twitter. He began his political ascent as Istanbul mayor.

"Turkey wasn't democratic yesterday and it's not democratic today", Eissenstat said.

Gargiulo was a friend of her brother's and 17 at the time Pacaccio was stabbed to death on her front porch. Kutcher left, not thinking anything was wrong, and Ellerin's body was found the next day by a friend.

The AKP still won the most seats nationwide in the local elections, but it has been damaged by Turkey's first recession in a decade, as well as record-high inflation and a currency that has lost more than 12 per cent of its value against the dollar this year alone.

Erdogan's party challenged the results in Istanbul, maintaining that alleged irregularities had affected the outcome.

The YSK had previously confirmed CHP candidate Ekrem Imamoglu the victor of the mayoral race in Erdogan's hometown, as the AKP launched its "extraordinary objection" to the results.

Howard Eissenstat, a Turkey expert at the nonprofit Project for Middle East Democracy and a Middle East history scholar at St. Lawrence University in NY, said Monday's ruling "removes the last fig leaf of competitive elections" hiding the erosion of democracy in Turkey.

"Shame on the YSK".

Erdogan has long rejected such accusations by equating democracy with elections, which the AKP has dominated since its founding in 2001. It was not immediately clear when the election would be repeated.
