Turkey's Political Uncertainty

Studying the June 7 election results is useful,
as it reveals interesting trends in Turkey’s
electoral behavior especially as Turkey prepares
for potential early elections later this year. This
paper evaluates the results through the micro lens
of the provincial results, offering insight into the
wide-ranging variables that significantly affected
voter behavior. It maps the shifts of support bases
for the country’s main parties—AKP, CHP, MHP,
and HDP—in order to determine where support
was higher or lower than the national average
