Turkey's ruling AK Party supporters celebrate the early results of the national elections in front of the party headquarters in Ankara, July 22, 2007. Turkey's Islamist-rooted AK Party won nearly 50 percent of the vote in a decisive national election victory on Sunday, early results showed. The stronger than expected showing gives the pro-business party a mandate for reform but potentially sets the stage for renewed tensions with the secular elite, a few months after a clash over who should be president triggered the early election.
