The ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) lost its overall majority in June 7 polls for the first time since it came to power in 2002, in a major setback for its co-founder President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. AKP leader Davutoglu and Republican People’s Party (CHP) leader Kemal Kilicdaroglu had held a one-and-half hour meeting in Ankara in what was seen as a final chance to agree a coalition government.
