Brussels, 2 November 2015

Sunday's general elections in Turkey, which had a high voter turnout, have reaffirmed the strong commitment of the Turkish people to democratic processes.

We look forward to the OSCE’s/ODIHR’s preliminary findings and conclusions which will be presented on Monday. The EU will work together with the future government in order to further enhance the EU-Turkey partnership and to continue to advance our cooperation across all areas for the benefit of all citizens.
