Main opposition Republican People's Party (CHP) deputy Mahmut Tanal has put a smile on hundreds of Twitter users' faces via offering to help Democrats in vote count following the U.S. presidential elections.
Tanal, who is known for protecting votes and even going as far as to sleep on top of them to prevent fraud, shared a picture of himself and asked, "Shall I come?"
The tweet quickly became viral, with Turkish people remembering last year's local elections that were marred by claims of election fraud.
U.S. President Donald Trump's efforts to prevent vote count and numerous other methods to undermine elections were reminiscent of the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) and President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.
The March 31, 2019 local elections were annulled in Istanbul following an application by the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP), which claimed that the main opposition stole votes without showing evidence.
A more decisive victory was secured by the CHP in the re-run elections on June 23, 2019.What would the result of 2020 US election mean for Ankara?
