Supporters of President Tayyip Erdogan’s AK Party (AKP) clashed with backers of the opposition DEVA (Remedy) Party in the Pervari district of the city of Siirt yesterday night, following local elections on Sunday in which the opposition mostly performed well across Turkiye.

In the district, the AKP candidate for mayor won with 52 per cent of the vote, while the DEVA candidate placed second with 40 per cent.

The governor’s office said five people had been hurt in the clashes, one of whom died of his wounds. The DEVA deputy chairman Mehmet Emin Ekmen identified the person who died as the brother of the party’s candidate.

DEVA was one of six parties in the opposition alliance before May 2023 general elections when Erdogan secured another 5-year mandate and his ruling alliance a parliamentary majority.

Police are investigating the incident and six people were detained, the Siirt governor’s office said, adding that it had imposed a curfew in Pervari district until tomorrow morning for security reasons.

Protests also spread elsewhere in Turkey’s southeastern provinces on Tuesday night, after Turkish authorities prevented the newly elected mayor from the pro-Kurdish DEM party taking up his post in the city of Van, and announced a re-run vote in Sanilurfa’s Hilvan district where AKP lost.
