Political parties, elections and democracy: A close-up on the political history of Turkey

The paper introduces the reader into intricacies of the Turkish parliamentary system, which is instructive to understand the country’s present orientation towards EU accession.
Key words: Turkish parliamentary system, authoritarianism, single party rule, multi-party politics, periodization
