They will add the women's perspective and the existence of women to politics and will thus create a different, more profound, political atmosphere.
29 AKP deputies
Among the 29 female deputies of the Justice and Development Party(AKP) there are lawyers and academics, but also pharmacists, chartered accountants, architects, landscape architects and engineers.
Özlem Piltanoglu Türköne, MP for Istanbul's first constituency, has been a district governer (kaymakam), the official in charge of a district. Nursuna Memecan, from the same constituency is a publisher. Then there is also Aysenur Bahcekapili, a lawyer known for her leftist leanings.
What many of the AKP deputies have in common is their long-term involvement in the party organisation.
10 in the CHP
In the Republican People's Party (CHP) five women are no strangers to parliament: Nevin Gaye Erbatur, Nesrin Baytok, Birgen Keles, Canan Artiman and Özlem Cercioglu have been MPs before.
There are five more parliamentarians, a total of 10 women in the CHP.
Among the new additions are Necla Arat and Nur Serter both professors at Istanbul University and organisers of the "Republican Rallies".
