ANKARA (Reuters) - Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan has won more than half the votes in Sunday’s presidential election after 97.2 percent of votes have been counted, the head of Turkey’s High Electoral Board (YSK) said.

Speaking at the YSK headquarters in Ankara after presidential and parliamentary elections, Sadi Guven also said the pro-Kurdish People’s Democratic Party (HDP) had passed the 10 percent threshold needed to enter parliament.
