Ballots in Batman combined
The ballots in Batman city center’s neighborhoods Belde, Cudi, Gültepe, Pazaryeri, Gap, Petrol, Raman, Tılmerç, Seyitler, Petrolkent, Huzur and 19 Mayıs have been combined with the ballots of other schools without showing any reasons. In these neighborhoods, the HDP has received more than 80% of the vote in the elections. The Provincial Election Board informed that to the mukhtars instead of the parties. Thereupon, the administrators of the HDP met the director of the Election Board, the director told the administrators, “We inform the mukhtars, we don’t have to inform you. Go and do whatever you can.”
HDP has filed an opposition against the order to the Provincial Election Board and the Supreme Electoral Council.
