    With Turkish general parliamentary elections coming up on July 22, the ruling Justice and Development (AKP) Party, led by Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, is reiterating its desire to see the new Turkish Parliament elect a name from within the parliament as the new president, while at the same time asserting that it will be aiming for compromise during the process

    Main opposition Republican People's (CHP) Party leader Deniz Baykal has for his part been repeating the desire to see a name from outside the parliament be chosen as presidential candidate.
    Commented Erdogan this week: "Let's definitely aim for compromise, though it's important what is understood by compromise. If the compromise is based on the mentality of 'if you accept my word on this it's ok,' then that really isn't compromise. But the views of a party which enjoys a certain statistical superiority with a democratic parliamentary system should be accepted."

    Erdogan did say that he would go from "door to door" looking for compromise regarding the upcoming presidential elections.
