On 7 May 2019, Financial Times published an editorial in which it is claimed that Turkey’s Supreme Electoral Council (YSK) is dominated by members of the ruling Justice and Development (AK) Party: "The decision of the election board, dominated by members of the ruling party, has put paid to this. Claiming some ballot box committees were improperly appointed, the board has called for a rerun on June 23."
