Turkey's Constitutional Court Rules Against AKP Closure
Posted by Shadi Hamid

Good news. Turkey has just averted a disaster, and by the slimmest of margins (a 6-5 vote). I, and many others, were bracing for the worst. This is a region that can't seem to get a break. If it can go wrong, it usually does. But it got a break today. The AKP will continue as Turkey's ruling party. However, the party's state funding will be cut in half, the Court's way of sending a warning to the AKP, without resorting to a full ban. For more on the decision, see here  for details. More analysis to come on later. This is a political equivalent of having a gun pointed to your head, but the gunman pulls back at the last second and only shoots you in the foot.
