Turks vote as PM Recep Tayyip Erdogan seeks third term

People in Turkey have voted in a general election, with Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan expected to win a third term in office.

Mr Erdogan and his Justice and Development Party (AKP) are hoping for two-thirds of the seats in parliament so they can amend the constitution.

The PM has promised that the amendments will include basic rights but has provided few details.

The main challenger is the secular Republican People’s Party (CHP).

It is fielding a large number of younger candidates in an attempt to improve its appeal.

The AKP, which has Islamist roots, has presided over strong economic growth and a more assertive foreign policy during its eight years in power.
