Politics of Turkey takes place in a framework of a strictly secular parliamentary representative democratic republic, whereby the Prime Minister of Turkey is the head of government, and of a multi-party system as its mentioned in Turkey political map. The President of Turkey is the head of state who holds a largely ceremonial role but with substantial reserve powers. Turkey political system is based on a separation of powers. Executive power is exercised by the Council of Ministers. Legislative power is vested in the Grand National Assembly of Turkey. The judiciary is independent of the executive and the legislature. Its current constitution was adopted on 7 November 1982 after the Turkish constitutional referendum.
The Turkish Constitution and most mainstream political parties are built on the following principles: Kemalism, Laicism, Modernization as you can see in Turkey political map. Other political ideas have also influenced Turkish politics and modern history. Of particular importance are: Conservatism, Neo-liberalism, Islamism, Pan-Turkism, Socialism, Communism, Anarchism. These principles are the continuum around which various – and often rapidly changing – political parties and groups have campaigned (and sometimes fought). On a superficial level, the importance which state officials attach to these principles and their posts can be seen in their response to breaches of protocol in official ceremonies.

Since 1950, parliamentary politics has been dominated by conservative parties as you can see in Turkey political map. Even the ruling AK Party, although its core cadres come from the Islamist current, tends to identify itself with the "tradition" of the Democratic Party (DP). The leftist parties, the most notable of which is the Republican People Party (CHP), with a stable electorate, draw much of their support from big cities, coastal regions, professional middle-class, and minority groups such as Alevis.
