Kılıçdaroğlu arrived at the school premises with his wife, Selvi Kılıçdaroğlu.
He made a statement to the press before leaving the school and expressed his hopes that the elections would enhance democracy, freedoms and wealth in Turkey, alongside his resentment over the unfair environment during the run-up to the elections.
“The campaign period was unequal. Turkey and the rest of the world know this. Nevertheless, we worked, and will continue to work, with a sense of responsibility,” Kılıçdaroğlu said.
When asked whether any irregularities have been brought to the CHP’s attention so far, Kılıçdaroğlu said that for now the process has been uneventful.
“So far, the elections are proceeding smoothly. The incident that saddened us the most is what happened in Diyarbakır. We wish it never happened,” Kılıçdaroğlu said, while praising the common sense that prevailed amongst the people of Diyarbakır.
