TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - In an interview Monday with The Associated Press, Ekrem Imamoglu also said a second victory for him would amount to a win for "democracy."
Imamoglu won Turkey's March 31 local election with a slim victory in what was a major blow to President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Turkey's electoral authority, however, ruling in Erdogan's favor, annulled the result and ordered the new election, citing irregularities.
Imamoglu said: "I believe the people will give the necessary response to this injustice at the polls."
The politician said his camp was working to prevent another annulment in the event of a second victory.
