The publication notes that Erdogan has already started working to win back the city in the municipal elections 10 months later.
The article also emphasizes that Istanbul has a special importance:
"Istanbul, once the capital of the Ottoman Empire, is today the largest city in Turkiye. The country's economic powerhouse is home to approximately 16 million people - that is, a quarter of Turkiye's voters."
