Turkish voters have gone to the polls four times over the past two years. Following the presidential elections and local elections of 2014, Turkey went to the ballot box twice more to decide who will govern Turkey until 2019. On November 1, in the latest election called by President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the Justice and Development Party (AKP) appears to have won just under 50 percent of the votes, securing 317 seats in the 550-seat parliament –after previously failing to secure a majority of parliamentary seats in the June 7, 2015 elections.
