Turkey’s coalition talks end without result

Published August 13th, 2015 - 05:00 GMT

Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu has announced that his Justice and Development (AK) Party's negotiations with the Republican People's Party (CHP) have ended without an agreement to form a coalition government.

Addressing a press conference at the AK Party headquarters in Ankara on Thursday, Davutoglu said, "We have come to the conclusion that the groundwork for a government partnership has not materialized," citing "profound differences, mainly in foreign policy and education".

With just over a week to go before the deadline for a coalition government expires, early elections “is a strong possibility", Davutoglu said.
