Disbelief and Celebrations in Turkey After Erdogan's Defeat

Celebrations erupted in Turkey after election results confirmed what many thought they’d never see: the country’s powerful and omnipresent leader President Recep Tayyip Erdogan suffering a resounding defeat.
There was a sense of disbelief on social media too, where Turks, who had started to lose faith in the system, rejoiced that "democracy won."Erdogan has been the face of Turkish politics for more than a dozen years. For those who live in Istanbul, his influence stretches back even further to his time as mayor of the city two decades ago. Many can’t remember a time when he wasn't in charge.
