Held in an environment of growing social polarisation, fears of emergent authoritarianism and economic challenges, the June 2015 elections ended AKP’s parliamentary majority of AKP, challenging its single-party rule for the first time in 13 years. This article first provides information on the background to the elections, focusing on debates about the authoritarian tendencies of AKP, economic conditions, and the competition for the Kurdish vote. Then, a brief overview of the campaign period is presented, followed by an analysis of election results at the sub-national level. The article concludes with some preliminary discussion of the causes for the loss of AKP’s majority.
