Erdoğan receives opposition CHP presidential candidate İnce for visit
ANKARA – Anadolu Agency
The meeting at the ruling Justice and Development Party’s (AKP) headquarters in the capital Ankara lasted for 40 minutes.
AKP Group Deputy Chairman Mustafa Elitaş and CHP Group Deputy Chair Engin Altay were also present at the meeting.
Last month, parliament passed a bill calling for early elections a year-and-a-half ahead of schedule.
The government aims to cement Turkey’s shift to an executive presidential system, which was narrowly approved in a controversial referendum in April 2017, marred by allegations of voting irregularities.
