Turkey's Erdogan says favours keeping three-term limit for MPs
ISTANBUL (Reuters) - Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan said on Friday he favored keeping a three-term limit for deputies in his ruling AK Party, comments which suggest he may not himself seek a fourth term and could instead be a candidate in August presidential elections.
Erdogan also said he had no plans to combine general elections, due in 2015, with the August presidential polls. There has been speculation in Turkey that the general elections could be brought forward.
