Turkey's AKP heads back toward single party rule - early vote results
By Ercan Gurses and Orhan Coskun ANKARA (Reuters) - Turkey's AK Party appeared to be closing in on its goal of recovering a single-party majority and governing alone, partial general election results showed on Sunday, in what would be a major turnaround for embattled President Tayyip Erdogan. The vote was Turkey's second in five months, after the AKP in June lost the overall majority it had enjoyed since 2002. Erdogan had presented it as a chance to restore stability at a time of tension over Kurdish insurrection and two bombings while critics fear a drift to authoritarianism under the president.
