The (preliminary) result shows political opposition in Turkey is resilient. This means there is still a strong base for democratic change in Turkey. The EU must take into account that Pres. Erdogan is not the only counterpart.
Let’s see if Pres. Erdogan keeps his electoral promises to lift the state of emergency and return to the rule of law. Ten thousands of people in jail are awaiting a fair trail.
Despite the unscheduled early elections, the opposition managed to organize itself and held rallies attended by millions of people. Parliament will be more representative, but AKP-MHP maintain majority.
Quite an achievement that with its Presidential candidate and 10 MPs in jail, 4000 activists arrested, some hundred of its mayors removed, moving of ballot boxes in SouthEast, HDP managed to pass the 10% electoral threshold.
The last obstacle for the introduction of a highly undemocratic presidential system has now been removed. A system which is absolutely incompatible with EU accession talks.
