Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s AKP Party were shaken on Tuesday after the sudden announcement that their ultra-nationalist coalition partners were calling off an electoral alliance for coming local elections.

Nationalist Movement Party (MHP) leader Devlet Bahceli withdrew his party’s support for the AKP, the largest party in parliament, after disagreements about an MHP-proposed amnesty of prisoners.
