Polls open in Turkey’s elections

Polls have opened in Turkey’s fiercely fought presidential and parliamentary elections that could extend or bring an end to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s 20-year rule.
His main opponent is CHP leader Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu, who represents an election coalition of six opposition parties. For the first time, Turkey’s factious opposition has coalesced around a single candidate.
A candidate must win over 50% of the vote on Sunday night in order to be elected. Otherwise, Turkey will head to a run-off on May 28.
