- controlling executive, legislative and judicial powers of the government (first two was achieved, last one is about to be achieved) - replacing police, judiciary and all other government officers with people who would obey the rule of AKP (meaning discrimination against anybody who object to AKP) - purchasing or bullying all media outlets to avoid any criticism of AKP - arresting anybody who don't agree with them or even who have potential to not to agree with them. Any of these doings are things a democratic party would do? Forget about partisanship, this is flat-out dictatorship. AND worst of all, EU doesn't say a thing... hypocrites!!!
