Erdogan Wins Big: Will Turkish Local Election Results Silence Critics?

To those who thought shutting down Twitter and crying conspiracy marked the beginning of the end for Turkey's prime minister of more than a decade, think again. Reçep Tayyip Erdogan's Islamist-rooted AK Party won big in Sunday's local elections, improving on its 2009 score. The prime minister has so far answered a widening corruption scandal with a wholesale purge of the police and judiciary, not to mention the new internet censorship laws. What will he do now that he has the wind in his sails?
