APTOPIX Turkey Elections

A supporter of the pro-Kurdish Peoples' Democratic Party, (HDP) flashes the V-sign as others wave flags of imprisoned Kurdish rebel leader Abdullah Ocalan, during a rally in Istanbul, Turkey, Monday, June 8, 2015, a day after the elections. The biggest change from Turkey's previous parliament is the ascendancy of the People's Democratic Party, a socially liberal force rooted in the Kurdish nationalism of Turkey's southeast. It attracted more than 12 percent of votes, breaching the minimum threshold of 10 percent. Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's long-ruling Justice and Development Party(AKP), has suffered surprisingly strong losses in parliament that will force it to seek a coalition partner for the next government.
