Turkish PM returns mandate to form government to President Erdogan

ANKARA Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu officially returned the mandate to form a government to President Tayyip Erdogan on Tuesday, the presidency said in a statement, after failing to find a junior coalition partner for his AK Party.

The move, widely expected after coalition talks between the AKP and the nationalist MHP broke down on Monday, could now lead Erdogan to give the mandate to parliament's second-largest party, the secular CHP, although it, too, is seen as being unable to form a government.
