Turkey: Votes cast for presidential, parliamentary elections.

Turkish voters have cast their ballots in presidential and parliamentary elections.

Voters cast two separate ballot papers-one for the presidential and one for parliamentary elections.

Six candidates including President Tayyip Erdogan are vying for the Turkish presidency. If a candidate wins just over 50 percent of the vote, he will win the presidency, but if not, there will be a runoff on 8th of next month.

Eight political parties are participating in the parliamentary elections. These include Justice and Development Party, Republican People's Party, Peoples' Democratic Party, Free Cause Party, Good Party, Nationalist Movement Party, Felicity Party and Patriotic Party.

Erdogan won the last presidential election in 2014 after completing two terms as prime minister.
