Turkey’s elections

Turkey’s election results are bad, but they could have been worse. At least the Islamists didn’t get the supermajority that would have allowed them to rewrite the constitution unilaterally. With their numbers they will still be able to rewrite the constitution, but it will have to face a referendum, so they can’t rewrite it as transparently as they would like.
