Turkey PM Erdogan: I will quit politics if lost election
Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan said on Tuesday he would pull out of politics if his ruling AK Party failed to form a single-party government after Sunday's national elections.

Opinion polls suggest the AK Party will win enough seats to form a government alone, though some analysts do not rule out a possible coalition government.

"If we cannot come to power on our own, I will withdraw from politics," Turkish television stations reported Erdogan, Turkey's most popular politician, as saying during campaigning.
