Turkey's Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan with his wife Emine Erdogan and their children salute supporters from the balcony of his ruling party headquarters in Ankara, Turkey, early Monday, March 31, 2014. Erdogan on Sunday hailed what appeared to be a clear victory for his party in local elections, providing a boost that could help him emerge from a spate of recent troubles. Erdogan was not on the ballot in the countrywide polls, but with about half of the votes counted, Turkish newswires suggested that his party was significantly outstripping its results in the last local elections in 2009 and roundly beating the main opposition party.
