Turkish PM is expected to return govt mandate

World Bulletin / News Desk

Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu will overturn the mandate to form a government to President Recep Tayyip Erdogan Tuesday. 

Since ruling Justice and Development Party's (AKP) coalition bids did not play well with neither the main opposition Republican People's Party (CHP) nor with the Nationalist Movement Party (MHP), the AKP leader reportedly decided to return government mandate. 

President Erdogan meanwhile is expected to grant the mandate CHP's Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu, leader of the second largest party in the parliament. 

However, only five days are left out of Constitution-provided 45-days-period for forming a government.
