The AK Davutoglu and Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan received nearly 50 percent of the vote and therefore has 316 of the 550 seats in parliament. The outcome of the AK can again govern without a coalition partner. But the 316 seats are not enough to hold a referendum on changing the constitution. This requires the support of 330 parliamentarians. Via a constitutional amendment would be more powers to be given to Erdogan, the founder of the AK.
