On Sunday 7 June 2015, parliamentary elections were held in Turkey. According to preliminary results, the incumbent Justice and Development Party (AKP) has lost its majority in the Grand National Assembly for the first time in 13 years. The election result was widely seen as a rejection of the AKP’s plans to replace the existing parliamentary system with one in which more powers are concentrated in the presidency. The election was also seen as a success for the pro-Kurdish People’s Democratic Party (HDP), which won 80 seats after fielding candidates for the first time.
