MP: AK Party Victory Benefits Palestinians

Head of the Parliament (Majlis) National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi said on Tuesday that Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan's Islamic oriented AK Party transformed the country over its first two terms in office and was widely expected to win a fresh mandate following the recent elections.

He added the AK Party's resounding victory in Sunday's parliamentary elections clearly shows public support for Islamic values being experienced under the party.

Given pro-Palestinian stands pursued by the governing Turkish administration, AK Party's third term win marks a triumph for the Palestinians and their cause, Boroujerdi also commented.

Erdogan's AK Party won 49.83 percent of the votes on Sunday, leading the main opposition Republican People's Party (CHP), which won only 25.94 percent of the vote.


The Nationalist Movement Party (MHP) gained 12.99 percent of the ballots, while independents obtained 6.58 percent, the Anatolia news agency reported.

Turkey's ruling party, however, fell short of a “super majority” of 367 seats in the 550-member Parliament that would have allowed it to rewrite the Constitution.

Boroujerdi, meanwhile, praised the formation of a new cabinet led by Lebanese Prime Minister Najib Mikati as a major step towards the establishment of stability in Lebanon and its neighboring state, Syria.

Lebanon's premier on Monday announced the makeup of his cabinet following talks with President Michel Sleiman and Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri.

Mikati has vowed that his cabinet would be one that represents all Lebanese.
