Thousands of jubilant Kurds flooded the streets of Diyarbakir in south eastern Turkey on Sunday.
The celebratory mass set off fireworks while waving flags as the pro-Kurdish opposition looked likely to enter parliament as a party for the first time.
The Peoples’ Democratic Party said initial results from Sunday’s election showed it would take 80 of 550 seats, a stunning result for a party that pollsters believed would struggle to cross the required 10% threshold.
It also marks a major setback for President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, who had hoped his AK Party would garner a crushing victory, allowing it to change the constitution by broadening executive powers.
Erdogan had repeatedly lashed out at the HDP and its charismatic leader Selahattin Demirtaş before the elections.
