Erdogan's Majority to Fall, Come Early Elections - Turkey Poll
Turkey's ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) would not be able to form a majority if Parliamentary elections were held now, polls suggest.
Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan's AKP party would earn 42.3% of the vote, according to the SONAR agency. The poll is based on 3025 respondents in 26 provinces across the country.
This would be 7.8% less than the party earned in the 2011 elections.
The main opposition Republican People's Party (CHP) would come second with 29.8%. The Nationalist Movement would come third with 18.7%.
A majority, 67.8% of respondents believe the current corruption scandal is genuine and involves high ranking officials from Erdogan's cabinet.
