Second Poll Shows Turkish Ruling Party May Lose Majority in Election

According to the results of a survey by pollster SONAR seen by Reuters on Monday, Turkey's ruling AK Party is seen losing its parliamentary majority in a June 7 election and may have to form a coalition government. The poll put AKP support at 41 percent, the main opposition Republican People's Party at 26 percent, the nationalist MHP at 18.1 percent and the pro-Kurdish HDP at 10.4 percent, just above the 10 percent threshold needed to enter parliament. The lira eased to 2.61 against the dollar from 2.5961 on Friday.
