MP: Election results in Turkey may be unexpected
Azerbaijan, Baku, June 8 / Trend / A. Tagiyeva /
The Turkish ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) has lost credibility among the population because of numerous faults in both domestic and foreign policies. So, the election results may be unexpected for the ruling party, the member of the Turkish Grand National Assembly from the opposition Republican People's Party Khalil Yunlutepe said.
"No one can predict the election results," he told Trend over phone from Ankara. "However, surprises may be expected from these elections."
He said that the AKP finally lost all chances to head the government after the recent unsuccessful attempts to conduct the mediation policy in the Middle East and a number of unfulfilled promises associated with the social problems of the population.
Parliamentary elections in Turkey are scheduled for June 12. Erdogan's party has been in power in Turkey since November 2002. At the last parliamentary elections held in June 2007, it gained about 47 percent of the votes and formed a single-party government.
He said that the Republican People's Party (CHP) significantly increased its ranking among the population. It is not ruled out that the party will head the government.
"CHP has a real chance to win the parliamentary elections in Turkey," he said.
The Justice and Development Party will try to unite with other parties to form the coalition government, he said.
"Erdogan's government will try to keep power," he said. "So, the establishment of the coalition is the best way for it."
