Will Erdoğan let power slip from his hands?
The main question of the June 7 general election was whether the Kurdish problem-focused Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP) could exceed the 10 percent threshold and get into parliament. It managed to do so, thanks to its co-chair Selahattin Demirtaş’s challenging of President Tayyip Erdoğan’s target to change the parliamentary system into a presidential one, which attracted Turkish liberals and leftists as well as traditional Kurdish nationalist and secular votes. The HDP representation in parliament was the reason why the Justice and Development Party (AK Parti) lost its 13-year majority in parliament.
