Baku, Azerbaijan, Nov. 3
By Rufiz Hafizoglu - Trend:
Economic development will be the focus of Turkey's new government, said Huseyin Altinalan, expert on Turkey, head of the Anadolu Agency's Istanbul bureau.
Speaking to Trend Nov. 3, he said that possibly the new government will enhance the fight against the PKK.
Altinalan added that, perhaps, Ankara will also boost its Syria policy.
"It isn't ruled out that Turkey will take new steps to prevent the strengthening of a number of terrorist and separatist groups," said Altinalan.
"After the Justice and Development Party (AKP) won Turkey's snap parliamentary election, the opposition began to change its stance with regard to the AKP and the country's president," he added.
While before the election, several opposition media outlets criticized the Justice and Development Party, after its victory, they called Ahmet Davutoglu the new leader of Turkey, according to Altinalan.
This can be assessed as a split among the forces which earlier united against the party, he added.
The Justice and Development Party garnered 49.41 percent of votes in the parliamentary election held in Turkey Nov.1.
Republican People's Party (CHP) gathered 25.38 percent of votes, Nationalist Movement Party (MHP) - 11.93 percent, Democratic People's Party (HDP) - 10.7 percent.
The remaining political parties garnered 2.58 percent of votes.
