Those who oppose President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo enthusiastically welcomed Erdogan's victory, equating the Turkish leader to their presidential candidate, Prabowo Subianto, who, barring no drastic change in the national political landscape, will challenge Jokowi for the second time next year.

Erdogan won 52.7 percent in Turkish presidential election after 96 percent of votes were counted in Turkey on June 24.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Monday celebrated winning five more years in office with sweeping new powers after a decisive election victory, as Turkey's opposition raised bitter questions over the conduct of the polls.

Speaking early Monday, Supreme Election Council head Sadi Guven said 97.7 percent of votes had been counted and declared Erdogan the victor, according to the Associated Press.

Results released by Turkey's state-run Anadolu news agency based on data from the YSK also gave Erdogan a clear majority of votes.

Still, Erdogan's main challenger, Muharrem Ince, and his secular-left People's Republican Party, or CHP, urged observers to stay at the country's ballot boxes to ensure votes were counted fairly.

Unofficial results from Turkey's presidential election show incumbent Recep Tayyip Erdogan with a commanding lead. With more opportunity to further these endeavors, Erdogan can better position Turkey as a leader of the Sunni world. "We will do more for the nation".

And after a failed coup in 2016 arrested tens of thousand of people and fired about 150,000 public servants and soldiers from their jobs.

Voting in Istanbul along with his son-in-law and Energy Minister Berat Albayrak, Erdogan said he expected turnout to be strong in an indication of "how mature democracy is in Turkey".

Demirtas, who won 8.4 per cent in the presidential race, has been in pre-trial detention since November 2016 on terror-related charges. Investors will watch closely for any sign that Mr. Erdogan is planning to use his power to influence policy, as he said he would before the vote.

However, the People's Alliance, an election bloc between the AK Party and the far-right Nationalist Movement Party (MHP), still has the majority with a combined predicted number of 343 seats.

According to Ozgur Unluhisarcikli, Ankara director of German Marshall Fund of the United States, it was not the campaign performance of Erdogan or underperformance of his opponents that created the result.

The victor of Sunday's presidential election will be the first Turkish head of state to govern with expanded powers after constitutional changes were approved in April 2017.

Still, the 54-year-old politician criticized Turkey's new system, saying: "Turkey has cut off its ties with democratic values".

Putin sent Erdogan a telegram to congratulate him on the victory, the Kremlin said in a statement Monday.

Muharrem Ince, Turkey's main opposition candidate, conceded defeat but described the election as "unjust" and warned that Turkey was entering a unsafe regime of one-man rule.

Mr Erdogan was prime minister for 11 years before becoming president in 2014.

Why did Erdogan hold elections early?

Throughout his presidency Erdogan has reintroduced Islamic conservatism to civic institutions in a quest to forge a "pious generation".

That control of Turkey's judiciary deepened when the president a year ago assumed a greater say in top judicial appointments.

"Erdogan will feel empowered with his renewed mandate and also the absence of mandate obtained by the newly constituted opposition alliance".

"Turkey made its choice in favour of a more determined fight against the PKK (Kurdistan Workers Party) and (Gulenists)", Erdogan said.
