There are 20 days left until the presidential and parliamentary elections in Turkey. But this week, Turks living abroad will vote, including the large expat community in Germany, where some 1.5 million Turkish voters live.
It is not yet possible to estimate the outcome of this year’s elections. Opinion polls alternately attribute victory in the first round of the presidential elections to Erdogan and the candidate of the opposition bloc, Kemal Kilicdaroglu. In the event that no one receives a majority of votes, a second round of elections will be held between the two most successful candidates on May 28.
