Elections in Turkey: Erdogan wins, but is not plebiscite

Turkish parliament changes considerably compared with earlier projections. 99% of the ballots counted the AKP, the moderate Islamic Party for Justice and Development led by Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, won 50.1% of the votes but was penalized by the opposition in the acquisition of seats that are now the lowest ever ever achieved, ie 326, just enough to bring avatars to constitutional reforms.

The minimum to pass constitutional laws is 330 deputies, with the subsequent referendum. At this time Erdogan should always seek the support of another party in parliament. Well the opposition. The CHP under the leadership of Kemal Kilicdaroglu reached almost 26% from 20.8% of the disappointing 2007 elections, 135 deputies and conquest.

Excellent proof of the MHP, which has kept unchanged consensus of 2007, 13% to 54 deputies, despite the big sex scandal that engulfed him during the election campaign and that many would end up penalizing. Finally, exploits of the independent candidates, who arrive at the record level of 35.

Of these the vast majority are Kurds, who are likely to see made their most optimistic outlook and more than 30 representatives in parliament. Certainly by the time you will know that in the parliament of the Kurdish cause pasionaria Leyla Zana, who would have been very successful in Diyarbakir preferences.
