Turkey's Justice and Development Party (AKP) has obtained a landslide victory in the November 1 general election.
With a voter turnout of nearly 88%, the AKP clinched victory after securing nearly 50 percent of votes in Turkey's 26th general election on Sunday, restoring an absolute majority, allowing the AKP to form a single-party government..
While the AKP came first in 63 provinces across Turkey, the HDP lead in 12 south-eastern provinces, but also lost control north eastern provinces of Ardahan and Kars to the AKP.
A ceasefire between Ankara and the PKK collapsed in July, when an ISIL suicide attack killed 27 people in Suruc, a town of Urfa in southeastern Turkey.Last Mod: 02 Kasım 2015, 09:44
