Turkey Elections

A poster of the pro-Kurdish Peoples' Democratic Party, (HDP) featuring pictures of co-chairs Selahattin Demirtas, top left, and Figen Yuksekdag, top right, flies over people as they walk and commute on a tram in Istanbul's main Istiklal Avenue, Turkey, Monday, June 8, 2015. Turkey’s long-ruling party has suffered surprisingly strong losses in parliament that will force it to seek a coalition partner for the next government, but other parties vowed to resist any pact as election results flowed in Monday. President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's Justice and Development Party, known as the AKP, won less than 41 percent of votes in Sunday's election for Turkey’s 550-seat parliament. It was projected to take 258 seats, still top of the political heap but 18 below the minimum required to rule alone. (AP Photo/Emrah Gurel)
