Erdogan and rival Davutoglu dispute over election vote counting

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Sunday that rushing to announce election results while the counting process was still underway would mean stealing the will of the people, while his rival Kemal Kilicdaroglu called on election authorities to record all results nationwide.

Erdogan wrote on Twitter in his first message since the end of the vote: "While the elections were held in a positive and democratic atmosphere and the counting process is still underway, trying to announce the results hastily means usurping the national will."

Kilicdaroglu also tweeted that "we will not sleep tonight" and called for all ballots to be counted.
