Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan rejected rumours about an early elections in the country, saying, "elections will be held on scheduled date", Anadolu Agency reported.
Turkey holds general elections every four years and next general elections are scheduled for 2011.
Speaking at the inauguration ceremony for new terminal of the International Sabiha Gokcen Airport in Istanbul, Erdogan said his ruling Justice & Development (AK) Party was committed to hold parliamentary elections on time.
Media reports circulating over the past few days claimed that he talked to main opposition leader Deniz Baykal about an early election. Erdogan denied reports and said, "it is against my principles."
"Why would I share such a thing with the main opposition (Republican People's Party)?" he said. "All these reports are lies."
Erdogan also said that "early election talk" would give harm to Turkey. He said such a talk caused a negative effect on the stock market over the past two days.
