“The entire world needs to respect this. I haven’t seen very much of such respect in the world,” Erdogan said after praying at a mosque in Istanbul on Monday.
While talking to reporters, Erdogan said Turks had voted for stability on Sunday after the failure of coalition talks following a June vote.
“The national will has been manifested as of Nov. 1 in favor of stability and those short-term developments told the national will ‘There is no other way than the national will,’ and displayed the making of such a decision,” Erdogan said, urging the nation to be united in the face of “great plots” that are being set up in the entire country.
In reply to a reporter’s question that some of the international media reports criticized his leadership, Erdogan said, “Why don’t they respect the national will? They haven’t displayed respect since the day when the national will elected Erdogan as president with 52 percent up to this date. One should ask, ‘Is this your understanding of democracy?.”
Turkey’s official Anadolu news agency reports that almost all of the votes have been counted and the AKP has received majority of them.
