İYİ (Good) Party candidate Meral Akşener has said she will support Republican People’s Party (CHP) candidate Muharrem İnce without any conditions if he runs in the second round of the presidential election on July 8, the Diken news website reported on Saturday.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and his government last month decided to hold snap parliamentary and presidential elections on June 24.

“We have already declared that we will support whoever runs in second round [of the election against Erdoğan] without any conditions,” Akşener said in a TV appearance on Halk TV.

“We do not need to discuss those issues today. We have to go all out to win the presidential election,” she added.

The pro-Kurdish Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP) has already declared that they will support İnce in the second round of voting but hinted a distance from Akşener.
