THE GREEK PRESS
State Television NET: While drawing attention to the fact that Erdoğan is the first leader to be elected as Prime Minister for a third time, their evaluation of the outcome was that it was a great victory.
Mega Television: Emphasis was also placed on the significance of Erdoğan in this day and age, being selected three times in a row as a political leader of such a grand country as Turkey.
La Stampa: The newspaper noted that Erdoğan did not receive the required number of votes to ensure 330 deputies, which would have allowed him to go to a referendum on his own for a new constitution.
Corriere Della Sera: An article entitled "Erdoğan's Painful Victory" claims the prime minister is not pleased with the results of Sunday's election, because it does not allow him to go ahead with the constitution in the manner he desired.
Il Giornale: A headline reading 'Erdoğan may have won but he has not become an Emperor', states that he did not win the necessary two thirds of the vote to allow him to change the constitution.
L'unita: An article with the headline, 'Tayyip's dream is to go down in history as the 'Islamic Atatürk', described the premier as a leader that is stuck between modernization and traditionalism, and is someone who is ambitious, a powerful speaker and is the creator of moderate Islam.
Der Spiegel: Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has won a third term in Sunday's parliamentary elections in Turkey. But he fell short of his stated goal of a two-thirds majority, which would have allowed him to unilaterally change the constitution.
