Video/ Was it intended as a communication strategy or did some Turks really vote with goats, cats and dressed as janissaries?
At least 24.1 million citizens of Turkey chose between Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Kemal Kilicdaroglu. Erdogan was the winner.
In a video published by Al Jazeera, among the voters there were those who went with various animals, including parrots, sheep, cats...
Someone disguised himself as a deer. A couple left their wedding in the middle to vote. Others voted dressed as janissaries.
These votes were called colourful. And it is not known whether it is a coincidence or a genuine marketing strategy.
However, Erdogan followed tradition as he distributed money and toys to supporters after the vote.
