Pro-Kurdish opposition to consider taking part in Turkish 'election government'

ISTANBUL Turkey's pro-Kurdish Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP) will consider taking part in an interim power-sharing government to lead the country to a new election, co-chairman Selahattin Demirtas said on Tuesday, after talks between other parties failed to produce a coalition government.

The HDP would also be happy to meet and discuss joining a coalition with the second-biggest party, the Republican People's Party (CHP), if it is now given a mandate to form a government, Demirtas said in comments broadcast live by CNN Turk.
