The ruling AKP desires to exert efforts to put an end to the conflict between the jurisdiction and legislation through Parliament Speaker Koksal Toptan.

AKP members also say that "Turkey has previously tried the 'senate' formula, but it left that alternative as it did not yield positive results."

Upon a question on whether the ruling AKP would be closed down or not, Ankara Mayor Melih Gokcek said, "I hope it will not. But if it is closed down, I believe nothing will be any different in the political sense."

"Even though Premier Recep Tayyip Erdogan is banned (from politics), he will be an independent candidate and he will become the prime minister again," Gokcek said. "Or, Mr. Erdogan may determine the leader."
