By Rufiz Hafizoglu - Trend:

More than 4,000 people in Istanbul left the ranks of the ruling Justice and Development Party and moved to the opposition Republican People's Party of Turkey, the Turkish Milliyet newspaper reported on March 29.

The reason for this step was their dissatisfaction with the policy pursued by the Turkey`s ruling party, the newspaper wrote.

Municipal elections in Turkey will be held on March 30, 2014.

It is expected that the main rivalry in the elections will be between the Turkish Republican People's Party (CHP) and the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) of the country.
