Final
Turkish National Election Results

2002

"Democratically elected"?
How Erdoğan Stole a 60% Parliamentary advantage
with just 34% of the popular vote...
In the two left-most columns of the election-chart below
you'll see the logos and acronyms of the Turkish political parties --
for example, the light-bulb logo for AKP,
the arrows-on-flag logo for the CHP,
and the circled-white-horse for DYP, etc.
In the next column to the right is the vote-count percentage
that each of the political parties won.
For example, the AKP party won 34.45% of the national vote-count,
while the CHP and DYP parties won 19.45% and 9.68% respectively.

In the far-right column is the number of party representatives
who will serve in the post-election government.
For example, there'll be 362 AKP, 179 CHP party representatives
[and 9 independent non-party representatives]
serving in the post-election government.
Special Note:
Any party that did not achieve at least 10% of the national vote-count
will not be represented in the post-election government.
Thus, only the majority AKP and minority CHP parties
who received 54.9% of the national vote-count between them
can participate in the post-election government.
Sad facts
Erdogan's AKP stole 60% of the parliamentary seats,
though his party gained only 34% of the popular vote.

More than 44% of Turkish voters
came up 'empty handed' in the election --
because they voted for candidates
of parties that didn't achieve the 10% national minimum.
Those voters will have no representation of their own choice
in the post-election government.
