Topic: Turkey's Erdogan: Snap vote 'inevitable' if no government within deadline

By Humeyra Pamuk ISTANBUL (Reuters) - Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said a snap election would be "inevitable" if both the ruling AK Party and the main opposition fail in efforts to form a new government within the constitutional limit of 45 days. In comments published on Sunday in Milliyet newspaper, Erdogan said he planned to grant a mandate to form a new government first to the AKP, which won around 41 percent of the vote in the June 7 election -- short of securing the parliamentary majority required to rule alone. "Let's say the party who came first in the election could not achieve this (to form a government) and neither did the second one.....In such a case, going to the ballot box again as per the constitution would be inevitable," Erdogan told reporters late on Saturday as he flew back from Azerbaijan.
