Turkish people thwart Erdoganís dreams of changing Constitution and establish himself as an all-powerful executive president
Turkish people thwarted Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s ambition of changing the constitution and to further bolster his clout, as voters denied his ruling party a parliamentary majority for the first time since 2002 in the elections held in the country on Sunday.

With 99 percent of the votes counted, Erdogan’s governing Justice and Development Party (AKP) won the election for the fourth time in a row, with around 40,79 % of the votes, but that represented a steep fall in support from more than 49% in 2011.

Erdogan decline in popularity and the increase resentment of the Turkish people against him and his party’s policies were attributed to the scandals of corruption which were unveiled in 2013 as well as his unlimited support to terrorism
in Syria through turning Turkey to crossings and headquarters for Takfiri terrorists,
in addition to creating crises with the neighboring countries.

The percentage gave the AKP an estimated 258 seats in Turkish Parliament, compared with the 327 seats it has now with a decrease of 69 seats.

The Turkish Republican People’s Party (CHP) led by Kamal Klijdar Ihsanoglu ranked second with 25,1% of the votes and took 132 seats, while the Nationalist Movement Party (MHP) led by Devlet Bahceli won the third position with 16,4 % and took 81 seats.

The Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP) led by Selahattin Demirtas succeeded for the first time to enter the parliament as it managed to surpass the steep of 10% percent of the votes by taking 12,6 % and around 79 seats of the 550 parliamentary seats.

According to the outcome of the elections the AKP, which has governed Turkey since 2002, will not be able to form a government alone, with 258 seats, as it was forced to negotiate a coalition with other parties or to call a fresh election if no parliamentary majority can be secured within six weeks.

The political circles expect that Erdogan will adopt all possible measures to cope with all the possibilities, mainly to entrust Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu to form the government and order it to stay in power even if the parliament voted no confidence as the President has the right to assign the government to stay in power until early elections within 90 days.
