Baku, Azerbaijan, Aug. 25
Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu proposed the opposition parties to share the responsibility for the formation of a temporary government and their deputies to join it, RIA Novosti reported.
Earlier, Turkish President Receb Tayyip Erdogan instructed Davutoglu to form a temporary government within five days, which will operate until the early parliamentary election. Earlier, President Erdogan talked about the possibility of holding the election November 1.
"We must not allow the country to be without a government at least one second," Davutoglu said at a press conference in Ankara. "I was appointed to this position, but it is our common task. We will propose the opposition party members to join the government, even if their leaders oppose this. I urge all parties to share the responsibility for the formation of a temporary government.
He stressed that earlier, the coalition talks failed because of the reluctance of the opposition parties to take part in the formation of the government.
"My appointment was connected with the obligation to negotiate with all parties," he said. "We have tried all options and fulfilled the task."
Turkey held parliamentary election June 7, which involved 20 political parties. Over 53 million people cast their votes in the election.
During the parliamentary election, Turkey's ruling Justice and Development Party garnered 40.9 percent of the vote, while the Republican People's Party (CHP) gained 25 percent; aside from that the Nationalist Movement Party (MHP) got 16.3 percent, and the Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP) garnered 13.1 percent of the vote.
