After Turkey's incumbent President Recep Tayyip Erdogan won the presidential election on Sunday, his supporters gathered on streets to celebrate his victory.

Preliminary results showed Erdogan won 52.6 percent of votes in the presidential race, with 97.2 percent of votes counted.

By 23:00 local time on Sunday, in the parliamentary election, the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) had garnered 42.4 percent, after 98 percent of votes were counted.

Although having the highest number of lawmakers at the parliament, the AKP may lose the majority at the 600-seat parliament since the party has received only 293 seats, according to initial results.

The AKP has already made an election alliance with the MHP under the People's Alliance.

In the opposition camp, the Republican People's Party (CHP) is projected to win 193 seats.

The pro-Kurdish Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP) garnered 11.2 percent of votes and is projected to win 67 seats.

President Erdogan on Sunday night declared his victory in a live broadcast on TV, citing unofficial preliminary results of the elections.
