There are 11 ministers from the AK Party and one from the nationalist MHP.

There are two ministers from the HDP, the first time a pro-Kurdish party has been represented in parliament.

Why is the election being run again?

The electoral re-run comes after the governing AK Party failed to win an overall majority in a previous election in June.

Subsequent talks to form a coalition government broke down.

The election is due to be held on the 1st of November.
