Trying to keep the country from becoming an Islamic state.
From the BBC, with thanks to Davida:
A court in Turkey has annulled last Friday’s parliamentary vote to elect a new president.
The only candidate, Foreign Minister Abdullah Gul, failed to win the required majority after a boycott by secularist opposition parties.
The parties, which accuse Mr Gul of a hidden Islamist agenda, challenged the legality of the vote.
Analysts say PM Tayyip Recep Erdogan could propose a different candidate but may call a snap general election….
Mr Gul and Mr Erdogan are both from the ruling AK party, which has Islamist roots and an overwhelming majority in parliament.
