Victory for Turkey's Ruling Party

Hosted by


Turkey has re-elected Prime Minister Recep Erdogan, but he'll need a political coalition to write a new constitution. While Erdogan is wildly popular among the country's poor and the Muslim middle class, secular Turks in urban centers worry about his party, the AKP, and what it could mean for their country. Marc Champion, who's covering the election for the Wall Street Journal, considers the possible changes in a secular state now ruled by an Islamic party.
