What's at stake in Turkey vote: key facts and figures

Selahattin Demirtas (C), co-leader of Turkey's pro-Kurdish Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP), attends a gathering at Galata Sarai Square in Istanbul on October 31, 2015After five months of political deadlock, Turkey votes on Sunday in its second election since June, called after the long-dominant Justice and Development Party (AKP) lost its majority in a stunning setback. Opinion polls are predicting a similar result this time round, which means the party co-founded by President Recep Tayyip Erdogan would have to form a power-sharing coalition, or call yet another election. More than 54 million people aged 18 and over are registered to vote out of a population of almost 78 million in the Muslim majority country.
