7:03 am
but as large as injuries grows where or those of erdogan in the end what mattered were the numbers of ballots cost in their favor turks will have a proud tradition of high voter turnout did not disappoint early indications were that more than eighty six percent of them participated voting not only for president with new powers but also for a new parliament with one hundred more members while our two ones are party were points with the presidential victory there will be disappointment over there parliamentary performance with the a k p using the true third supermajority they once held only managing to secure a simple majority with the help of their nationalist m h p allies the big winners in the parliamentary votes were the kurdish h.t.t.p. winning over fifty seats making just new legislative body more diverse than the previous one and it's that who is among the many in turkey will hope can help bridge the political divide that continues to affect turkish society speaking to

the nation i don't seem to understand those concerns. we're his jim sin and. no one should be discriminated against in this country because of their belief because of their gender or because of their origins we will not allow this. the opposition will be disappointed that they were unable to at least force a second round of voting they will take part however from their improved performance in the parliament and the fact that a relatively unknown person like jay was able to secure thirty percent in such an important election with victory i do not only hope for once again that he. wanted to shoot a party the day i become the first ever thank you jim five years now i. have to believe in the family on monday like he was coming up for the amount of different become. recent history now what he does with it. will be turning him
7:05 am
for nothing. but it's a call i cannot sell. this is not a question i'm kind of. ok let's look in detail at the numbers and how they stack up with all the ballots counted took slightly more than fifty two percent of the vote in a field of six candidates his main challenger was muddy an inch a from the c.h.p. who drew millions to his rallies but just polled thirty percent the imprisoned leader of the pro kurdish h d p. took eight percent it was the first time to chose their president and their parliament at the same time so far a.k.p. is leading with forty three percent the c.h.p. is second with nearly twenty three percent of the s.d.p. will be the third biggest party with just over eleven percent of the vote to bennett smith now for reaction from the opposition see h.p.'s headquarters. there's frustration and disappointment here the republican people's party headquarters the
7:06 am
t.h.b. they hope that their candidate more i mean jay would at least have forced a second round runoff vote to do that they needed to deprive stop present one getting more than fifty percent plus warm vote it appears that one has done not n.j. has not really got over about thirty percent of the vote so a lot of disappointment here though the opposition will say that they never started off this election with a level playing field much of the television news at time was devoted to the act party and president and they got about sixty seven hours coverage last month compared to seven hours of coverage for example for the republican people's party those so they say they were facing an uphill battle all the way they might take some consolation from the suggestion that the out party has been to deprive its overall majority in parliament it will have to work with this far right m.h. p party to to help pass legislation through parliament and those in favor of the
7:07 am
out party and also the kurdish h.e.p.a. is represented in parliament so that may may suggest that is a very representative selection of turkish society in parliament but above all yes frustration and disappointment here the c.h.p. that we're not going to see a second round runoff here for the presidency of turkey. and he is the president of the turkish heritage organization he says while several opposition parties made it into the parliament none of them was strong enough to pose any real threat to mr. the reader is the actually turkish democracy tonight and there'll be seven parties in the turkish parliament and the demo crissy will be stronger in the turkish parliament because our dan present our don doesn't have the super power he has partner everything nationalist party h.p. that way right now the other opposition parties representing this will also voice
7:08 am
