ISTANBUL - Power cuts in some districts of the Turkish capital of Ankara during vote counting in Sunday's local elections were caused by sabotage, the initial findings showed, according to reports on Thursday. (UPDATED)

An initial investigation conducted by police and officials from the Turkish Electricity Distribution Company, or TEDAS, has revealed that the supply from substations in those districts had been physically tampered with, ANKA News Agency reported.

Police have launched a search to find those responsible, it added.

Opposition parties claimed earlier that during the power outages some ballot boxes and ballots were stolen and filed an official complaint calling for a probe into the issue.

A suspect had been caught attempting to pack counted votes into uncounted ballot boxes at a polling station in the Dikmen district of Ankara during the power cut on election night.

Ankara's incumbent mayor, Melih Gokcek, of the ruling Justice and Development Party, or AKP, was elected for the fourth time after a tight race against rivals from the Republican People’s Party, or CHP, and the Nationalist Movement Party, or MHP.
