Poll: AKP loses its majority

According to a public opinion poll published by the AKAM polling company, the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) would lose its majority in parliament if the Turkish elections were held today. 

The survey shows that while the main opposition party, Republican Peoples' Party (CHP) would retain its proportion of around 25 percent of the votes, the newly formed Good Party (IYI) would receive 13 percent and the pro-Kurdish Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP) would win 12 percent of all ballots.

Despite being under the electoral threshold of 10 percent, the Nationalist Movement Party (MHP)'s alliance with AKP would allow the party to be represented in the Turkish Parliament. 

AKAM predicts that if the elections were to be held today,  the AKP and MHP coalition would get 45.2 of the votes and win 290 deputies in the 600-seat Turkish parliament. 

According to the poll, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and the candidate for the CHP are most likely to reach the second round of the upcoming Turkish elections.
