Turkey's 2023 general election in numbers

The upcoming Turkish presidential and parliamentary elections on 14 May are expected to see a high turnout, despite February's deadly earthquakes, which have displaced millions of people.

The choices of nearly five million first-time voters could be significant in the outcome. Four candidates, including current president Recep Tayyip Erdogan, are vying for the presidential seat.

As Turkey's democratic process marches on amid challenges, the nation and the world watch closely.
