ISTANBUL - Turkish prosecutors launched 32 investigations into allegations of irregularities in Istanbul's local elections on March 31 and summoned more than 100 polling station officials for questioning as suspects, state-owned Anadolu news agency said on Thursday.

President Tayyip Erdogan's AK Party (AKP) has called for the annulment and re-run of the Istanbul vote. In the nationwide local elections on that date, the AKP lost control of Istanbul and the capital Ankara.
