Turkey’s Governing AKP Headed Towards Majority With 90 Per Cent of Votes Counted

ANKARA, Nov 1 (Reuters) – A senior official from Turkey’s main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) said there was no likelihood of a coalition government after Sunday’s general election, with the AK Party apparently on its way back to single-party rule.

With almost 90 percent of the votes counted, the AK Party was on 50.3 percent, according to state broadcaster TRT.

ANKARA, Nov 1 (Reuters) – Turkey’s ruling AK Party looks on track to win back its parliamentary majority and form a government alone, according to partial results from Sunday’s election broadcast by state-run TRT television.
With almost two thirds of the votes counted, the AKP had taken 51.9 percent of the vote, TRT said. The main opposition CHP was on 22.5 percent, while the nationalist MHP was on 11.4 and pro-Kurdish HDP on 10.5 percent, just above the 10 percent threshold needed to enter parliament, TRT said.
The results could still change significantly, with counting not yet completed in some of the largest cities.
