Turkey Vote Result Shows Change in ME

The victory for the Justice and Development Party (AK Party) indicates the regional changes and Islamic Awakening -- which has swept many Muslim countries across the Middle East and North Africa, IRNA quoted Mohammad-Javad Larijani as saying on Wednesday.

The victory is an achievement for the pro-Islamic movements throughout the entire region, said the official in a meeting with Turkey's Ambassador to Iran Umit Yardim.

The AK Party, which is headed by Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, won 49.83 percent of the vote in the Sunday parliamentary polls for a third consecutive year, securing 326 seats in the 550-member parliament.

Larijani spoke to the Turkish envoy about the Islamic Republic's achievements since the 1979 victory of the Islamic Revolution in Iran, deeming the circumstances right for the expansion of human rights relations between the two sides.

The comments came amid ongoing anti-government protests in the Arab world particularly in Libya, Yemen, Bahrain, Jordan and Saudi Arabia.

The demonstrations have been motivated by the successful revolutions in Tunisia and Egypt, which earlier in the year toppled the two US-backed dictatorial regimes.
