Turkish Ruling Party to Win: Poll

In its latest report released Wednesday, the polling company IKSara said that although the AKP's score has decreased by one percentage point in comparison to 2007, 45.5 percent of the voters still supported the ruling party, Xinhua reported.

Meanwhile, votes for Turkey's main opposition group CHP have increased to 30.5 percent from 20.7 percent in 2007.

The second biggest opposition faction, the Nationalist Movement Party (MHP), received 13.1 percent of the votes in the poll, while the pro-Kurdish Peace and Democracy Party (BDP) garnered 6.4 percent of the votes.

According to the report, votes below 10 percent will prevent the groups from gaining seats in the parliament.

The CHP -- with its new leader Kemal Kilicdaroglu -- is gaining strength, the report further said.

The survey covered 2,504 voters from all the 81 provinces of Turkey.

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan of the AKP promised in his election campaign that the new parliament's first job would be to draft a new constitution to replace the 1982 constitution, which was adopted after a military coup.

Turkey is scheduled to hold the general elections on June 12 with 50 million eligible voters voting for 15 political parties running for 550 seats in the parliament.
