7:05 pm
in nashville. he was 73 at this hour representatives of the republican presidential campaign gathered to discuss changing the form at of remaining debates. the meeting was prompted by nearly universal complaints about the debate. while they want to make changes, it's not clear if they agree on what changes to make. aljazeera.com's michael shure joins us from los angeles. who exactly called. >> some of the campaigns, before the cm b.c. debate last week, those of under runners say that they don't like being on the second stage, giving fuel to that. because a lot of people on that second stage were upset with the way it was handled. it's not just the formatting,
7:06 pm
it's the questions. i spoke to someone from the gram campaign, that said one of the things they want out of this is all debates interest to be two debates of seven candidates. they are randomly chosen. they have not registered at the on-site in washington, but you have jump and carson, huckabee, paul, marco rubio and rick santorum and gram. they want to change the way the moderators were connected. there was a change today. at the g.o.p. they reacted to this. they are not included. the people of the r.n.c. they have taken shaun karencross, the c.e.o. they've moved them into a chief debate organiser.
7:07 pm
who remains a spokesperson for the r.n.c. that's a change they are doing to the demands of the campaign. >> if they have been unhappy. why are they singling out n.b.c. they put the debate on what they feel is the straw that broke the camel's back. whether or not they are right, they don't know. it was the bush campaign that had the biggest problem. they are in the washroom saying you have to ask jed more questions. they didn't do it. finally they kicked the bush people and the r.n.c. out of their room where they watched the debate in bolder. n.b.c. is coming under fire, it was the recent debate. and they have a debate in january that the r.n.c. wanted to put on. >> how much leverage to the candidates have over the networks? >> more than before. you have candidates that don't
7:08 pm
care about the power structure of the party. donald trump and ben carson tied at the top. statistically in the polls, the two of them couldn't care less about the party, going up against the party is something they are happy to do, and the network. one thing they have to be careful of is that in january, they were co-hosting telamundo. the only debate appealing to the audience is that debate. republicans know they have to tread carefully around that. >> michael shure reporting from los angeles. thank you very much turkey's ruling party reclaimed the parliamentary majority it lost in june. the justice and development party captured over 49% of the vote. the main opposition party, the c.h.p. got 25%. that means the akp doesn't have to form a coalition to govern.
7:09 pm
the prime minister called it a victory for democracy. opposition leaders said the result proved that it was unfair. al jazeera's jamal has more from the a.k. party's headquarters in ankara. >> despite the cold and the late hours, thousands of a.k. party supporters gathered outside the party's headquarters to celebrate what they see as a massive victory for their party. joy and surprise on the faces of these people, because many did not expect to win by a huge margin. for them, it's vindication of their party, believing that population, the large section of population, one in every two people, put their faith and their trust in a party in which they say delivered success over the past 13 years. their leader, who although a
7:10 pm
happy man, did strike a measured speech when he addressed the nation. he said this was a victory for democracy before a victory for the party, and said that there was room in turkey for all the different political views, and that he was thankful to the people of turkey for placing trust in them, hoping that he wouldn't disappoint. that fear of insecurity, instability that many turks had since the hung parliament was a result of the june elections. now no longer exist. it's a renewed han date for the a.k. party and a new era for turkey. >> jamal reporting there. and for more on the election results, let's bring in al jazeera international affairs contributor, joining us from ann arbor. just, first, give me your reaction to the election results. were you surprised? >> this was a result.
7:11 pm
the polling did not reveal there would be this kind of turning for the akp. they got 31% in june. the polling suggested it may have moved a little bit. not to this extent. >> is this a divisive win? how do you characterise the win. the situation is polarized. recep tayyip erdogan picked up a lot of support from the turkish national right, taking a stance against the p.k.k., the kurdish separatist guerillas, and managed to divide the pro-kurdish leftist party, which had got conservative kurds to
7:12 pm
vote for it. they go back to the akp. >> who does this win gen pit. who in the benefits, and who losses? >> the justice and development party represents, i would say, business and specially import/export malls. business in the center of the country. it represents people who tend towards the muslim right. it's like the american republican party in a way. >> what does this mean for ou recep tayyip erdogan rules going forward? >> he doesn't need a partner in parliament. and his party has enough of a majority. on the other hand, in order to
7:13 pm
change the constitution, moving to a presidential system. he would have needed 21%, it may not be possible for him to rearrange the structure of governance. there's evidence that he may go on ruling as president even though technically he count have the power to do so. >> is he able to do that. >> the problem is who could stop him. the parliamentarians can't. the judiciary and the press and military have been somewhat tamed by his repeated success at the polls, and the prime minister is a close friend, and so people accuse him of overstepping his bounds. >> what does it mean for the relationship between turkey and
7:14 pm
the u.s., which has been a bit strained and there has been times that the u.s. needed turkey because of balance of things. what does it mean for the relationship? >> turkey and the united states have forms of cooperation. priorities are different. turkey wants to see bashar al-assad overthrown sooner rather than later and the government wants to push back the kurdish power, very afraid of the rise of leftist kurds in syria. the kurdistan focused on i.s.i.l., it's not a big priority, and the u.s. is willing to pump up the syrian kurds. in a way that wouries turkey. >> thank you for joining us.

7:17 pm
future. >> our country has been left behind. we will not change now. >> the party is concerned about inaccuracies in the vorer list, which could affect 30% of voters, and has been criticized for giving in to anti-muslim sentiments. >> in ethnic majority areas, votes are likely to be won by ethnic parties. they may affect how well it does, the campaigned promise of change is attractive. especially after 50 years of military rule, ending four years ago. >> victory will not be enough to ensure change, a push for reforms will be subject to the constitution, which has been drafted to ensure the military's continued role in politics, the general's vision of what democracy means will prevail. that will not stop voters.
