GOOD: Turkey’s election is a blow to Erdogan and a victory for Kurds. “Although it is still the biggest party in the country, the AKP suffered its worst result since 2002. It was projected to lose its majority in parliament, an astonishing turn of events for a party that has dominated Turkish politics for almost a decade and a half. The AKP was expected to fall far short of the 330 seats needed to force a national referendum on Erdogan’s plan to scrap Turkey’s parliamentary structure for a presidential system, with him at the top. . . . Analysts believe Erdogan’s desire to assume further powers and eliminate checks and balances through an executive presidency badly backfired.”
