Turkey's electoral threshold not a violation: EU court
The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) decided on Tuesday that the 10 percent electoral threshold in Turkey was not a violation of human rights.

The court's decision was supported by 13 judges while 2 judges voted against it.

Members of the now defunct Democratic People's Party (DEHAP) Resul Sadak and Mehmet Yumak had filed a case with the ECHR in 2003 claiming that the 10 percent electoral threshold in Turkey was a violation of human rights.
