    Support for Turkey's ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) fell in October, while one third of voters remain undecided about which party they would vote for, according to a poll published Friday in a Turkish newspaper.

    The poll, conducted with 1,834 respondents by A&G Research Company on Oct. 4-5, showed support for the ruling party fell 7 points to 41 percent when undecided voters are included, Vatan daily reported.


    The percentage of undecided voters stands at 30.8 percent, the poll also showed.    


    The ruling AKP had 48 percent of voter support in a September poll conducted by the same company.


    The rise of terror attacks in the country and an international charity fraud scandal, which is claimed to have strong ties with the government, are believed to be undermining support to the AKP.


    According to the poll, support to the main opposition party Republican People’s Party (CHP) rose to 21 percent in October, while the Nationalist Movement Party (MHP) has 18.6 percent of support from Turkish voters.
