Turkey's Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu called on citizens not to vote in the parliamentary election for the oppositional Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP), Anadolu Agency reported June 5.
He said every vote for HDP is the support for the terrorist Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK).
As it was reported earlier, the deputy prime minister, Yalcin Akdogan said that if the HDP will proceed to parliament, it will demand autonomy for Turkey's Kurdish citizens.
The parliamentary election in Turkey will be held on June 7.
