Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said he expected to receive a mandate today to form a new government and to start coalition talks next week, more than a month after an election deprived his AK Party of a parliamentary majority.

Opposition lawmakers have accused President Tayyip Erdogan, a founder of the AKP and Turkey's most popular - and polarizing - political figure, of deliberately delaying coalition talks in order to keep a firm grip on power and push for a snap election he hopes would give his party a majority.

While the nationalists are closer to the AKP ideologically, an alliance would likely scupper a peace process with Turkey's Kurdish minority, something Erdogan sees as part of his legacy.
