Turkey election

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has hailed his party’s election victory as a vote for “unity and integrity” after the ruling Justice and Development Party (AK party) took back a majority in parliament…

Addressing jubilant AK party supporters in his hometown Konya as the results became clear, prime minister and AK party leader, Ahmet Davutoglu, said that all 78 million people of Turkey would be embraced, whether they voted for the party or not. “We are here to plant seeds of love. There is no rival or enemy on this land. There is only affection,” he said. “Nobody should get into a psychology of defeat. Our democracy has won,” Davutoglu added.
