Reuters-Turkey's main opposition attacked the state-run media on Sunday for its coverage of parliamentary and presidential elections، saying it was attempting to manipulate the public's perception of the polls.

President Tayyip Erdogan had 55.08 percent of the vote with 70.5 percent of the votes counted in Turkey's presidential election on Sunday، broadcasters said.


But Bulent Tezcan، the spokesman for the main opposition Republican People's Party (CHP)، said support for Erdogan would be below the majority required to win the race in the first round.


Muharrem Ince، the main opposition's presidential candidate، stood at 29 percent nationwide، television channels said. If no candidate wins more than 50 percent in Sunday's vote، a second round run-off will be held on July 8.
