Over half of Turkish parliament comprises of newly elected MPs
Some 335 of 600 members are eligible to sit in parliament for the first time in the current parliamentary session.
According to unofficial results, 335 out of 600 legislators were elected for the first time in Sunday's general election in Turkey for the 28th term of the Turkish parliament.
46 parliamentarians who were MPs prior to the 27th legislative term were re-elected for the next legislative term. In addition, 219 parliamentarians from the 27th term were re-elected to parliamentary seats.
Among the 335 lawmakers, 148 belong to the Justice and Development Party (AK Party), 90 to the Republican People's Party (CHP), 47 to the Green Left Party, 27 to the Good Party (IYI Party), 18 to the Nationalist Movement Party (MHP), four to the New Welfare Party, and one to the Turkish Labor Party.
On Sunday, millions of voters went to the polls to choose the country's president and members of its 600-seat parliament.
Although President Recep Tayyip Erdogan was unable to secure the win in the first round, marking the country's first-ever run-off, which Turkey's Supreme Elections Council scheduled for May 28, Erdogan believed that the election marked a victory for "Turkish democracy and the Turkish Nation."
Erdogan expressed confidence in emerging victorious in the next round of presidential elections after falling less than half of a percent short as counting was finalized on Monday.
The leader of the Justice and Development Party pointed to the 27 million votes he received saying that the Turkish people showed "great favor" towards his political party, adding that they "gave the majority in the Turkish Grand National Assembly to the People's Alliance, confirming that they trust us and our Alliance."
