    Turkey’s Ruling Party Loses Parliamentary Majority

    The Little Dictator has been crushed.

    Mine, He is a freaking wingnut and a clear danger to Democracy in Turkey which he significantly degraded during his terms..

    The election results represented a significant setback to Mr. Erdogan, an Islamist who has steadily increased his power as president, a partly but not solely ceremonial post. After more than a decade as prime minister, Mr. Erdogan has pushed for more control of the judiciary and cracked down on any form of criticism, including prosecutions of those who insult him on social media, but his efforts appeared to have run aground on Sunday.

    The election was also a significant victory to the cadre of Kurds, liberals and secular Turks who found their voice of opposition to Mr. Erdogan during sweeping antigovernment protests two years ago.

    This is good news, indeed. Erdogan's powers diminished and The Kurds get to play Kingmaker. Its almost like Poetic Justice. From your link JF




    The diminished power of Mr. Erdogan’s party is likely to rein in Turkey’s ambitions to shape events in the Middle East, an activist policy that has been controversial among political opponents and the public.

    “Turkey’s foreign policy will be less driven by the A.K.P.’s ambitions, which is basically driven by a foreign policy vision to make Turkey a regional player at any cost,” Mr. Cagaptay said, suggesting it had supported various Syrian factions opposing the Assad government and sometimes turned a blind eye to fighters crossing into Syria to join the Islamic State.

    He added: “The outcome of the election will take Turkey’s anti-Assad policy down a notch. The government will not be able to drive its agenda singlehandedly anymore.”.....snip~

    It is good news. Wonder what would turn up if they ever investigated him and his 600 M palace.

    More than likely how much he is connected to the MB not only in Egypt. But the Syrian MB that Assad's Father ran out of Syria who returned and began the protests against Assad.

    Good for Turkey and good for the Kurds, who have been abused so often.

    Turkey

    ISTANBUL — Turkish voters delivered a dramatic blow to President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his ruling Justice Development Party on Sunday, with results showing it losing its majority in parliament.

    And, in a historic first, a party dominated by ethnic Kurds surged into the Grand National Assembly in Ankara, marking a new moment in the evolution of Turkey’s democracy as well as a direct challenge to Erdogan’s own ambitions to consolidate power as president.

    “This is a nuclear explosion in Turkish politics,” said Bulent Aliriza, an expert in Turkey at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington. . . .

    Greetings, MMC.

    Wasn't it the brave Kurds who figured out a way to rescue the Yazidi men, women and children who were trapped on the mountain by ISIS, without sufficient food and water, while the rest of the world was still talking about what to do? Kudos to them! :

    Erdogan needed to be replaced!

    A racist scumbag will ruin everything,he did exactly the same thing in 2002 and AKP started to rule.

    Leader of the Nationalist Party refuses to form a coalition goverment with other opposition parties because one of these parties are pro-Kurdish and the other one doesn't hate Kurds.They would rather let this country fall apart than sit next to a Kurd in the parliament and they call themselves nationalist.They don't want Kurdish issue to be solved because their only policy is being anti-Kurdish,it's the only purpose of their existence.Also they don't refuse to form a coalition with AKP if they declare war on Kurds again.

    There is no crisis that capitalism can't get out of if the working class is willing to pay for it.
