Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said on Thursday that the May 14 presidential and parliamentary elections proved to the world the strength of Turkish democracy.
“On May 14, we not only saw the strength of Turkish democracy at the ballot box but also witnessed the deflation of the 'perception bubbles," Erdoğan said.
The president was referring to the biased news reports on Turkish elections.
Prior to the election results, Western media and officials had spurred anti-Erdoğan rhetoric and openly voiced support for Kılıçdaroğlu.
Erdoğan said that “sneaky psychological operations” were carried out against Türkiye in the international media but that with the elections all these were refuted.
“We have shown that the dictatorship claims are pure nonsense. We showed our nation that it is not possible to adjust from the covers of magazines.
“We have shown that elections cannot be won with lies, slander and the politics of fear. We showed it is impossible to enter the hearts of the people with hate speech.
We have shown that it is not possible to walk with separatists and FETÖ members for the sake of political gain,” he added.
