Erdogan says presidential election postponed to May 14 due to ‘seasonal conditions’


ANKARA (Sputnik) – A presidential election in Turkey, to be held on May 14, is not a snap election as it has been postponed due to seasonal conditions, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Sunday.

Earlier in the day, Erdogan said Turkey would hold presidential elections on May 14, a month ahead of schedule.

“Some people try to distort the purpose [of rescheduling the election]. It’s not a snap election, it’s a change of date,” Erdogan said during a meeting with young people in the city of Bursa.

The president also said the decision to move the election date from June 18 to May 14 was made based on “seasonal conditions” such as exams and farm work.

Earlier in January, the Turkish leader said Ankara may postpone the June 18 general election to an earlier date “in light of seasonal circumstances”, hinting at the vote being held on May 14.
