Turkey's snap elections was unplanned - Erdogan.

ISTANBUL, April 22 (KUNA) -- Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said the decision to hold snap elections was unplanned, but came following his meeting Nationalist Movement Party (MHP) leader Devlet Bahceli. In an interview to Turkish channel NTV on Saturday, Erdogan challenged the Republican People's Party leader Kilicdaroglu to run as the CHP's candidate for president. "He should enter this race," the Turkish president said. "Let's see how much the nation votes for you." He added that his country had not witnessed such a controversial election in its history, "even the United States failed to organize elections at the level of the Turkish elections." The Turkish parliamentary and presidential elections is scheduled for June 24. (end) ta.haq
