The Justice and Development(AK) Party has won 49 percent of the vote

Republican People's Party (CHP) came in second place with 25.85 percent and The Nationalist Movement Party (MHP) won 12 percent.

The pro-Kurdish Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP) won 10.45 percent, just above the 10-percent threshold to enter Parliament. As a democratic socialist and anti-capitalist party, the HDP aspires to fundamentally challenge the existing Turkish-Kurdish divide and other existing parameters in Turkish politics. The party's programme places a strong emphasis on environmentalism, minority rights and egalitarianism. Selahattin Demirtas is co-leader of the pro-Kurdish Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP).
