Possible election fraud

Reader comment on item: Will Turks Accept the Election Results?

Submitted by Joseph Meissner (United States), Dec 15, 2015 at 11:29

I too was quite surprised by Turkish election results. My understanding is that the Turkish economy is still not that great and may even be sliding down again. The security situation is poor and the government should be blamed for this. The administration in no way seems to have reached out to others, such as Kurdish supporters and the Gulen supporters. S why almost a 25% gain? (40% before, noiw almost 50%)But nowhere have I seen in the media any discussion about fraud. Your column is the first.

What proof is there of fraud and why has this not been brought forward?

Thank you
