    The pro-Kurdish HDP party passed the election threshold to win almost 12 percent of the 600 seats in parliament. They will be campaigning for greater Kurdish influence, but the ultranationalist MHP party, which opposes any policy of reconciliation with the Kurds, also won 11 percent of the seats in parliament.

    Al Jazeera's Mohamed Vall reports from Diyarbakir, in southern Turkey.
