In reaction to reported discrepancies between the results from polling stations and the entries at YSK, a group of people launched a vigil late Tuesday in Ankara, and were targeted by the police who detained ten.
A spokesperson for the group earlier called on the voters in Ankara to join in the vigil and to "reclaim their votes."
"It is apparent that YSK acts in violation of laws and is engaged in efforts to steal the people's will," Ilay Eroglu said.
10 activists were detained by the police after they have started a sitting protest.
