    82 out of 550, but again its no longer soley a Kurdish party, after it banded together with other leftist groups to overcome the 10% threshold it needed get seats in parliament.

    And that Turkey until they get the US onto regime change in Syria will buy oil, treat wounded, sell products, and do little to interrupt ISIL.

    And it stops his run for power. As President, as you had mentioned, little power on paper, but that is not the reality on the ground.

    Good to hear though are they going to actually get a coalition set-up or is it still fairly likely AKP retains some power? Bit surprised to see the chance, the only thing I had really heard on the election was a couple weeks ago on Al Jazeera, with the thought that the opposition wouldn't get enough votes to dethrone AKP, but would pick up seats and make it more difficult. If I recall the thought was CHP (think it was them), and maybe the Nationalist as well, were too secular for majority of Turkey.
