Turkish Liras, centre, featuring images of Turkish Republic founder Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, are seen among other foreign currency, at a currency exchange office in Istanbul, Turkey, Monday, June 8, 2015. The Turkish currency on Monday dropped to a record low against the dollar over the political uncertainty, trading at 2.8 lira against the dollar. On elections held Sunday, June 7, 2015, Turkey’s long-ruling party has suffered surprisingly strong losses in parliament that will force it to seek a coalition partner for the next government, but other parties vowed to resist any pact as election results flowed in Monday. President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's Justice and Development Party, known as the AKP, won less than 41 percent of votes in Sunday's election for Turkey’s 550-seat parliament. It was projected to take 258 seats, still top of the political heap but 18 below the minimum required to rule alone. (AP Photo/Emrah Gurel)
