A night of triumph for Erdogan saw the man who has dominated Turkey for the last 15 years declared victor of Sunday's presidential poll without needing a second round and take his ruling party-led alliance to an overall majority in parliament.
The president, 64, declared victory in Istanbul before returning to Ankara to deliver a triumphant speech at 3:00 a.m.to tens of thousands of supporters from the balcony of the headquarters of his Justice and Development Party (AKP). "We will fight even more with the strength you provided us with this election".
Erdogan spoke of his commitment to fight terrorist organisations and "to continue the fight to make the Syrian grounds freer" and to better the country's "international reputation".
"I recognize the election results", Ince said, but added, "Turkey has broken its connection with the 143 years of parliamentary system. It is transitioning toward a one-man regime", the 54-year-old said.
Ak Party's alliance with Nationalist Movement Party (MHP), the People's Alliance, secured a majority of seats in parliamentary elections on Sunday.
Five candidates ran against Erdogan.
Voters had a "genuine choice" in these elections, Glover said, but media coverage that was skewed in favor of the ruling party and Erdogan "prevented them from making an informed choice".
A Monday statement issued by the High Representative of the EU for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Federica Mogherini, and European Commissioner for European Neighborhood Policy and Enlargement Negotiations, Johannes Hahn, did not name Erdogan or refer to his election win.
Erdogan, ruling AK Party build early lead in Turkish elections
Erdogan, who held five rallies in Istanbul on June 23, called on supporters to be vigilant at the polling stations. Without them, many said, the country could not function. "Turkey", he said , "is staging a democratic revolution".

Demand growth has surprised market watchers on the upside in the past two years, with annual increases exceeding 1.5 percent. China's trade restrictions could leave the growing volumes of USA crude from shale without a buyer, traders said.

France responded when, following a neat build-up, Mbappe tried to feed Antoine Griezmann inside the area but the pass was cut out. Australia coach Bert van Marwijk is ready for different challenge. "I'm very happy with his performance today", Deschamps said.
With election victory in hand, Erdogan will rule with new muscle provided by sweeping changes to the constitution that were approved by a narrow majority of the electorate in a controversial referendum that he championed a year ago. Its electoral ally, the newly formed İyi (Good) party, led by Meral Akşener, won an impressive 10 percent of the vote in its first-ever election. "I would have said [Erdogan's party] cheated but I just watched Mr. Ince conceding the election and accepting the results without protest".
"Turkey is staging a democratic revolution", Erdogan told reporters in the polling station in Istanbul where he voted on June 24.
Some 50,000 people have been arrested and more than 110,000 civil servants have been fired in a massive government crackdown that has taken place under a state of emergency imposed after the coup that is still in place. But under the new presidential system, he can do that anyway.
CNN reports that Erdogan declared himself the victor before the results were announced, leading to opposition claims that "state media and the election commission had manipulated the results and saying it was too early to be sure of the outcome".
Erdogan has transformed Turkey first as prime minister from 2003 to 2014 and then as president, allowing Islam a greater role in public life and giving the country a much more assertive profile on the global stage.
The opposition candidates had pledged to overturn the new powers, which were narrowly passed by referendum previous year, if they won.
Erdogan easily won Sunday's election because the Turkish people believe that the Islamist president is capable of regaining Turkey's credentials as the leader of the Muslim world and being a key player in global, economic, political and military affairs. The E.U. Council will discuss relations with Turkey later this week, balancing the need for collective action on migration flows with concern about democratic backsliding. The United States, France and Germany don't want us to be stable.
Despite 90% of the media being pro-government and largely shunning the opposition, the president's posters and flags dwarfing any challenge on the streets, the election being held under a state of emergency curtailing protests, and critical journalists and academics being jailed or forced into exile, Mr Erdogan only got half of the country behind him.
