Turkish presidential elections are heading for run-off between Erdogan and Davutoglu

The results of Turkey's presidential election tended to be a run-off after 90% of the votes were counted.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's vote after state media reported that he had advanced early yesterday evening fell to less than 50 percent after 90 percent of the votes were counted, according to the state-run Anadolu news agency.

Around 23:00 (20:00 GMT), Erdogan had received 49.94 percent of the vote from about 90 percent of the ballots counted, opening the door to a second round on May 28.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said rushing to announce election results while the vote count 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.
