Turkey's main opposition leader Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu said his party would back Turkish President Abdullah Gül if "the only two candidates" were Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and Gül.
"If there are only two candidates, and only those two names come forth, then why not?" Kılıçdaroğlu said during a televised interview on private broadcaster Star TV.
Kılıçdaroğlu also added that his Republican People's Party (CHP) would like to nominate someone whose political identity hadn't been put forward and someone the Turkish people would be willing to accept as president.
