Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan appears to be in the lead and seeking to continue in power for a third decade, according to preliminary results of the presidential runoff election.

Erdogan received 52.07% of the vote, while Kemal Kilicdaroglu, the leader of the opposition, received 47.93% of the vote, according to unofficial preliminary results from the state-run Anadolu agency. The reported voter turnout was 85.6%.

Erdogan appeared to win the election, and while the official confirmation of the results is still pending, he celebrated in front of his Istanbul home. He addressed a sizable group of jubilant supporters while singing in celebration from atop a campaign bus and expressed his gratitude to the country.

Erdogan declared that the support of the people was necessary to complete the second round of the presidential election, thanked them for voting, and declared all 85 million Turkish citizens who participated in the elections on May 14 and May 28 as winners.

Erdogan received congratulations from a number of foreign leaders, including those from Qatar, Libya, Algeria, Hungary, and the Palestinian Authority, even before the official vote count was finished.
