PM Tells Party To Be Ready For New Polls As Talks With CHP Intensify

  • Published in Politics

Since interim Prime Minister and Justice and Development Party (AK Party) Chairman Ahmet Davutoğlu completed the first round of coalition talks with the three opposition parties last week, the second round of coalition talks are expected to start this week. While the Nationalist Movement Party (MHP) and pro-Kurdish Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP) made clear their intention to not be part of any coalition government in the first round of talks, a coalition between the AK Party and the Republican People's Party (CHP) seems to be the only remaining option. Meanwhile, Davutoğlu told all provincial party leaders to be ready for possible early elections if coalition negotiations with the CHP lead to nowhere. The talks, which will be coordinated by Culture Minister Ömer Çelik and CHP Deputy Chairman Haluk Koç, will include two more political and economic sub-categories. During the talks, building consensus by political means will be a priority.

Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan stated on early Friday that he does not accept the expression of "Dolmabahçe Agreement", referring to the reconciliation declaration consisting of ten points, which was shared with the public following the meeting between pro-Kurdish Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP) deputies and Deputy Prime Minister Yalçın Akdoğan at Istanbul's Dolmabahçe Palace on February 28. The ten points were declared as a roadmap for a final solution of Turkey's Kurdish issue and 30 year-old PKK armed insurgency.

President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan gave Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu the mandate Thursday to forge a government, starting a countdown that could lead to a re-run considering the failed compromise up to now over an alliance. Amid a pessimistic climate, Davutoğlu set his schedule and will pay his first official visit to the chairman of Republican People's Party (CHP), Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu, on Monday to see whether he can team with the long-standing opposition. Davutoğlu is scheduled to meet with the Nationalist Movement Party (MHP), which has so far openly expressed that it wants to remain as the main opposition, and will head to the pro-Kurdish Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP) on Wednesday to talk over a partnership, which Davutoğlu had said was a remote possibility.
