A public survey conducted by the Metropoll polling company has shown that President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) would have received 33.2 percent of the nationwide vote in a possible general election in July.
According to the poll, some 11 percent of the participants were undecided, while 4.5 percent refused to provide an answer.
The AKP’s support improved compared to the company’s survey for June in which it had stood at 30.3 percent.
The AKP’s election partner, the Nationalist Movement Party (MHP), has continued to lose voters with 6.0 percent, down from last month’s 6.2 percent and 7.3 percent in May.
The main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) also lost some support, declining to 20.5 percent, from 21.7 percent in June.
The newly established DEVA and Gelecek parties stood at 1.3 and 2 percent, respectively. Both parties were founded by former AKP officials who resigned over their criticism of AKP policies.
