The Turkish Election

Is this the end of the New Turkey?

Turkey held its 24th general election in its history last 7th of June. The new 550 MPs are now part of the 25th Grand National Assembly of Turkey. As expected, the Justice and Development Party (AKP) won the election but for the first time in power they did not achieved majority. A coalition government will now govern Turkey during next years if the parties agree of one. They have 45 days to achieve a consensus before a new elections can be marked.
