As President Recep Tayyip Erdogan sweeps to victory in Turkey's elections, FRANCE 24 hears from Turkey's ambassador to France. Erdogan won the vote without needing to go to a second round, and has now seen the results accepted by his main challenger. The victory also means Erdogan will have new powers after the country voted in favour of them last year, despite claims of irregularities in the polling. Turkey's ambassador to France, Ismail Hakki Musa, welcomed the result as good news for Turkey.
