KONDA Research and Consultancy Ltd. was established.



KONDA conducted its first election surveys for the 1987 General Elections. The last of the six surveys we conducted in july-November, prior to the elections held on November 29, 1987, predicted that a three-party parliament would be formed with 44.6 percent of the vote of ANAP, 18 percent of the SHP and 12.4 percent of the DYP, and that the DSP would remain below the threshold. Anap won 36.3 percent of the vote, shp 24.8 percent and DYP 19.1 percent.



We did a series of researches for Milliyet newspaper before the popular vote on constitutional amendments on September 25, 1988, on whether local elections should be held a year early. The latest research, published on September 24th, found that if 2.5 per cent undecideds were disbanded, the Yes would be 34.97 per cent and the Nos would be 65.03 per cent. As a result of the popular vote, Yes came out 35 percent and No 65 percent, and Milliyet announced this result with the title "Full hit from Milliyet".



In our research in the three major cities for the March 26, 1989 Local Elections, we predicted that SHP would win the mayoral elections.



In our research ahead of the General Elections held on October 20, 1991, we predicted that the DYP would take power from ANAP, but we could not foresee that ANAP would be the second party, not the SHP, due to the difference in the vote. The october 15-17 survey showed the DYP would get 27.4 percent of the vote, ANAP 22.1 percent and shp 24.8 percent, but the election resulted in the DYP getting 27 percent, ANAP 24 percent and SHP 20.75 percent.



Prior to the March 27, 1994 Local Elections, the main competition for the Mayor of Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality was between İlhan Cutter of ANAP and Zulfü Livaneli of SHP. Konda's survey for Kanal D, published in Milliyet on March 26th, predicted 24.9 percent for ANAP, 24.7 percent for SHP and 23.1 percent for RP, but the headline of the story was "Prosperity may emerge from this table". In the local elections, the Welfare Party won 25.19 percent of the vote in Istanbul and Recep Tayyip Erdogan became mayor.



The poll we announced ahead of the 1999 General Elections was a news story about the rise of the MHP and the chp's fall under the threshold. Those who didn't like such a possibility did not find this finding credible. After all, it's not like The DSP received 22.2 percent of the vote, the MHP 18 percent, the FP 15.4 percent and the ANAP percent 13.2 percent, and the DSP/MHP/ANAP coalition was formed.



Tarhan Erdem conducted 4 surveys starting 2 months before the November 3rd elections. In these investigations, it was seen that the current ruling coalition parties remained under the dam, the Ak Party would be in power, and outside the CHP, Cem Uzan's Young Party would only cross the threshold. The 2002 election resulted in a picture that excluded coalition parties from parliament, as research shows. The decline of the Young Party, which fell from 15 percent to 9 percent in the latest survey, continued until the ballot box and it managed to win 7 percent of the vote.



"Who Are We?", which conducted face-to-face interviews with 48,000 people across Turkey and revealed important data on the ethnic/religious structure of the country and the Kurdish Question Social Structure Survey". The ethnic composition of Turkey had not been published since the 1965 census, and this survey, which put the Kurdish population in Turkey at 14 million people, was widely recognized. Who Are We? Social Structure Survey https://konda.com.tr/tr/rapor/biz-kimiz-toplumsal-yapi-arastirmasi/



Ahead of the July 22, 2007 General Parliamentary Elections, the poll predicted that the Ak Party would win 47.9 percent of the vote, and different columnists from the press criticized KONDA and Tarhan Erdem, who announced the possibility that the ruling party was receiving almost half the votes. Some members of the press claimed only that the poll could be wrong, while one group accused KONDA of influencing the electorate in favor of power and being hostile to the opposition. On July 22nd, the result of the ballot box (46.7 percent of the White Party) was almost identical to konda's poll result. The election results also reassed our prediction that the DYP would fall under the threshold.



The "Religion, Secularism and Turban in Everyday Life Survey", which is a follow-up to a survey we conducted in 2003 and published in September 2007, not only tracks the changes in the rate of those who cover in Turkey over the past five years, but also takes a snapshot of the public's religious worship habits and the place of religion in daily life. http://konda.com.tr/tr/rapor/gundelik-yasamda-din-laiklik-ve-turban-arastirmasi/



We conducted our first lifestyle survey in April 2008, titled "Who Are We? Lifestyles" in April 2008.
