Turkey has today declared a "day of silence" before the parliamentary election, the Turkish Central Election Committee said June 6.
Today, the political parties are prohibited from holding any pre-election campaign.
The parliamentary election in Turkey will be held on June 7.
Some 20 parties will take part in the election, during which 53,765,231 people are going to cast their votes.
The main competition at the parliamentary election is expected to be between the ruling Justice and Development Party and the Republican People's Party.
If the Peoples' Democratic Party overcomes the 10-percent threshold and goes into the parliament, the ruling party will have to form a coalition government.
