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?

Produced and prepared by Anelise Borges, Haxie Meyers-Belkin and Diaraye Bah
