Election in Türkiye the tallest woman in the world votes

Turkey will vote on a new parliament and president in a historic election on Sunday. Head of State Erdogan falters.

Rumeysa Gelgi, the tallest woman in the world at 2.15 meters, also voted in Turkey’s presidential and parliamentary elections. The 26-year-old suffers from Weaver’s syndrome and therefore had already signed up for the mobile voting service, where election officials visit people with severe physical disabilities at home so they can vote.

Gelgi got into the Guinness Book of Records for his height. Due to her illness, she is only able to walk short distances with assistance and therefore mainly uses a wheelchair to get around. Also, she cannot sit on chairs that are less than 55 centimeters high. On its only flight, Turkish Airlines had to remove six rows from the plane.

Erdogan cast his vote

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan cast his ballot in Istanbul’s Uskudar district. He then said: “I have been following the elections since dawn. The process has been running without incident or problems. The most important thing was the voting in the earthquake zone. Our citizens are voting with great enthusiasm,” Erdogan said. In order to show the “strength of Turkish democracy”, it is very important that all voters vote by 5 pm.

Turkish presidential candidate and Erdogan’s most promising opponent, Kemal Kilicdaroglu, also voted in the Turkish election. Television footage showed Kilicdaroglu at the polls in Ankara on Sunday. “We miss democracy a lot,” said Kilicdaroglu. “Spring” will be here soon, the 74-year-old said, referring to a possible election victory.
