    The Justice and Development (AKP) Party, which was formed on August 14, 2001, has emerged to victory for the second time now in Sunday's general elections. Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan's party, which won places for 363 MPs in the November 3, 2002 general elections, won a higher percentage of the general vote in these elections, but despite that will have a few fewer MPs in the Turkish Parliament.

     The AKP, which is now preparing for its second term in power, has a 6 year past. It won the November 3, 2002 general elections with 34.28% of the general vote, while this round of general elections saw AKP gain 46.54% of the Turkish vote, an almost 13% rise in votes for the AKP. One significant difference in the results of these most recent general elections has been that, while only 2 parties were able to transcend the threshhold in the November 3, 2002 elections, the nationalistic MHP party was also able to pass the 10% electoral threshhold.

    Following the Sunday elections results, AKP supporters all over Turkey took to the streets on foot and in their cars, waving flags and chanting slogans in support of their party, and also calling on CHP general leader Deniz Baykal to hear their cries.
