Turkey’s ruling party won a majority on Sunday night in a shock victory that will consolidate Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s power and raise fears the country will slide further into authoritarianism.

The success comes after the party Mr Erdogan co-founded failed to win parliamentary elections outright in June and managed only 258 seats. To win a majority, a party must win 276 seats in the national assembly.”
