Independent candidate Mustafa Akinci, incumbent president , bagged 48.76 percent of the votes.
Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan congratulated Tatar on Twitter and said that Ankara would continue efforts to protect the rights of Turkish Cypriots.

President Erdogan said he believed “the harmonious cooperation displayed Ersin Tatar’s premiership in every area, particularly regarding the hydrocarbon activities in the Eastern Mediterranean and the TRNC’s development, will be maintained with the same determination.”
