ISTANBUL (DİHA) – The latest polls in Turkey have the Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP) overcoming Turkey's high electoral threshold by a comfortable margin. The KONDA Research Company puts the HDP's percentage of the national vote at 12.6%.
Yesterday, with three days to go until Turkey's hotly contested election, the KONDA Research Company released what will be the last election poll before voting day. The polling company puts the AKP at 41%, the CHP at 27.8%, the MHP at 14.8% and the HDP at 12.6%--enough to pass Turkey's 10% electoral threshold to enter Parliament.
