Turkish Coalition government: the possibilities

World Bulletin / News Desk

Today, no party in the Turkish parliament has met the 276 threshold to form an individual government. In this particular case, a coalition is now on the agenda.

The AK party is likely to form a government alone on the support of the other three leading parties. This means that the AK party will be a minority government. If the AK party remains a minority governement, it can form a government with less than 276 seats. Former Transport Minister and adviser to President Recep Tayyip Erdogan Binali Yildirim, had voiced this issue prior to the election.

AKP-MHP COALITION GOVERNMENT SCENARIO

Despite neither party having the seats to govern alone, both the AK party and the MHP ministerial seats form more than enough to form a coalition, as well as a confidence vote in the Turkish parliament.

AKP-HDP COALITION GOVERNMENT SCENARIO

During the peace solution process, the possiblity of this scenario was one of the most debated. However HDP leader Selahattin Demirtas has made public statements on this issue and has said they will not form a coalition with the AKP.

AKP-CHP COALITION GOVERNMENT SCENARIO

Within the arithmetic angle, this option seems to be strongest scenario. Both parties have the seats as well as the confidence vote exceeding any other. The critical question that remains is that how will the voters react to such a government coalition.
Kemal Kilicdaroglu, in response to a question before the election was a resolute, "no".

CHP-MHP-HDP COALITION GOVERNMENT SCENARIO

As opposition to the AK party this scenario was frequently debated on evaluation of the election results. In numerical terms, this is a possibility. On the other hand, the MHP and the HDP coalition constituency has generated alot of discussion.

CHP-MHP MINORITY COALITION SCENARIO


Leaving the HDP outside, the formation of a CHP-MHP coalition is another scenario. The CHP-MHP have insufficient members of parliament to either create a government or have a confidence vote. The HDP vote of confidence could great a government although not a very strong one.
