Turkey Elections 2018: All the latest updates

Voting counting is under way in Turkey as the country held its first simultaneous parliamentary and presidential elections.

More than 56 million people were eligible to vote in Sunday's elections, in more than 180,000 ballot boxes across Turkey.

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan will be looking for a first round knockout and an overall majority for his ruling Justice and Development Party (AK Party).

But both these goals are in doubt in the face of an energetic campaign by his rival from the secular Republican People's Party (CHP), Muharrem Ince.

Presidential race - 71.36 percent of votes counted

  • Recep Tayyip Erdogan: 55.02 percent

  • Muharrem Ince: 29.45 percent

  • Meral Aksener: 7.48 percent

  • Selahattin Demirtas: 6.95 percent

    • Meral Aksener, IYI Party leader and presidential candidate, accused Anadolu Agency of manipulation, and urged party observers not to leave ballot boxes until the end of the process.


      • The pro-Kurdish People's Democratic Party (HDP) also blamed the state-run Anadolu for what it claims is a manipulation of the early election results.

      • "Let us not leave the ballot boxes, let us protect our votes until the last moment," the party said on Twitter.

      Parliamentary race - 57.82 per cent of votes counted

      • People's Alliance (AK Party - MHP): 57.18 percent

      • Nation Alliance (CHP – IYI Party – SP): 31.84 percent

      • HDP: 9.7 percent

        Presidential race - 60 percent of votes counted

        • Recep Tayyip Erdogan: 55.88 percent

        • Muharrem Ince: 28.97 percent

        • Meral Aksener: 7.45 percent

        • Selahattin Demirtas: 6.49 percent

        Half of presidential votes counted

        • Erdogan leads with 56.5 percent after half of the presidential votes have been counted, state media reported.

        Main opposition attacks state media over election results coverage

        • A spokesperson from the main opposition CHP said the state-run media's election results coverage is an attempt to manipulate the public's perception of the polls.

        • Bulent Tezcan, the CHP spokesman, said support for Erdogan would be below the majority required to win the race in the first round.
