The parliamentary elections in Turkey evolved into a political crisis. The ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) won the elections but it lost the majority in the parliament. In a serious situation, AKP is searching for possibilities to build a coalition with other political forces in the parliament. The recent elections in Turkey are unprecedented. For the first time during 13 years the governing party has lost the majority in the Grand National Assembly of Turkey and the Kurdish issues-centred Peoples' Democratic Party has gained seats in the parliament.
