Poles Open for Turkish Elections

The poles have opened for Turkey’s local elections. Millions of Turkish citizens will be able to cast their ballots until 5 p.m. (Israel-time).

The local elections have proven to be Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s government’s first critical test since the demonstrations broke out against him and an investigation was opened surrounding the corruption that is rampant within his state.
