ISTANBUL (Reuters) – Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan’s AK Party will ask the top electoral board for a recount of all votes cast in Istanbul in last week’s local elections, a senior party official was quoted as saying by Turkey’s NTV broadcaster.

Initial results from last Sunday’s election gave a narrow victory to the opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) mayoral candidate in Istanbul. The AKP had already appealed the results and partial recounts in some districts, and full recounts in other districts have already been taking place.
