It is clear that Erdogan is advancing with the Turks in Austria

The Turkish people, who have the right to vote in Austria, once again clearly came out in favor of Recep Tayyip Erdogan in the presidential elections.

With 97.14 percent of the ballot boxes counted, the incumbent president has secured nearly 72 percent of the vote, according to figures from the official Anadolu news agency today. Official figures from the electoral authority are not yet available. Opposition leader Kemal Kilicdaroglu got less than 26 percent.

In Germany, too, the incumbent took nearly two-thirds of the vote, with nearly 98 percent of the ballot boxes counted. According to this provisional figure, Erdogan received nearly 65 percent of the vote in Germany, while opposition leader Kemal Kilicdaroglu received just under 33 percent.

The exception is Switzerland

In Switzerland, on the other hand, Kilicdaroglu managed to win over among Turkish voters. After all the ballot boxes were counted, the opposition candidate got 57.60 percent there, while Erdogan got only 40.33 percent. The background may be that many members of the opposition found refuge in Switzerland after the 1980 military coup.

Erdo─čan fared much better in Austria and Germany, but also in France and the Benelux countries as well as other European countries with many foreign Turks than in elections in general.
