False registration is a sign of how desperate AKP is, which falling behind in polls across the board:


More than 200 voters live in the same apartment in Bingol, a city in eastern Anatolia. That’s either one big happy family or something does not add up. The suspicious registrations were uncovered by members of the opposition Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP) and the Republican People’s Party (CHP). Scheduled for March 31, the prospect of an opposition victory in regional elections has put officials in Turkey on edge.

Recent days have seen voters registered with addresses at stables, construction sites, and empty or nonexistent buildings. One apartment was reported listed for 1,000 voters. CHP members said they found voters registered on the fifth floor of a four-floor apartment building in Istanbul.
