Three days before the general elections, the differences between opinion polls continue. If there is a consensus on AKP and CHP entering the Parliament, MHP and DP remain on the hedge. Moreover, there are tremendous speculations on how large will be the AKP’s victory. PM Erdogan has recently announced that he would withdraw from politics if his party could not rule alone. But, AKP could be threatened by a potential alliance formed by CHP and MHP.

Meanwhile, markets remain disconnected from local politics, with the ISE-100 index reaching a record high, while YTL/USD reached his lowest level since March 2005.
