Azerbaijan, Baku, May 10 / Trend A. Tagiyeva /
The Turkish ruling party has not justified the expectations and demands of people. So, the Justice and Development Party (AKP) will not be able to keep leadership in the parliamentary elections and will not get the required number of votes to maintain the power, the head of the Turkish Center for International Relations and Strategic Analysis (TÜRKSAM) Sinan Ogan said.
"AKP will not be able to win the parliamentary elections," the chairman of the Turkish-Azerbaijani Society, a member of Trend Expert Council, Sinan Ogan told Trend over phone from Istanbul.
The regular parliamentary elections are scheduled for June 12, 2011. Erdogan's party has been in power in Turkey since November 2002. It gained about 47 percent of votes in the last parliamentary elections held in June 2007 and formed a single-party government.
He said that any statement of AKP leaders that the Nationalist Movement Party will not able to get the necessary number of votes to gain seats in the parliament, aims to weaken the influence of this party among the people.
Earlier, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that according to the survey conducted among population, the ruling Justice and Development Party is the leader in the number of supporters and it will get 45-50 percent of votes in elections. The Republican People's Party can rely on 25 percent of votes. Regarding the Nationalist Movement Party, it has no chance of winning. It is out of play.
