Turkey General Election, 2015 - İnfodemy - infodemy, danışmanlık, çevirmenlik
The Turkish general election of 2015 was held on 7 June 2015 to elect the 550 members of the Grand National Assembly. The election was the 24th general election in the history of the Turkish Republic and the elected members formed the 25th Parliament of Turkey.
The Justice and Development Party (AKP), which had governed Turkey since 2002, lost their parliamentary majority while remaining as the largest party for their fourth consecutive general election. Winning 258 seats with 40.9% of the vote, the party failed to meet their target of 330 seats and fell well short of President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan's personal target of 400 MPs. The Republican People's Party (CHP) remained as the second largest party, faring below their 2011 election performance by winning 25.0% of the vote and 132 seats. Having been projected to win many nationalist votes from the AKP, the Nationalist Movement Party (MHP) saw an increase in both their vote and seat share, winning 80 seats with 16.3%. Despite speculation that they could fall short of the 10% election threshold and lose all representation in Parliament, the Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP) fared better than expectations and won 80 seats with 13.1% of the vote. 97 women MPs were elected, an all time high since the establishment of the Grand National Assembly.
