ANKARA: Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said on Thursday he will begin talks next week with all political parties on forming a coalition government after a June election deprived his party of a parliamentary majority.

In a speech to his party group in parliament, Davutoglu said he expected President Tayyip Erdogan to give him a mandate later in the day to form a government. The ruling AK Party failed to win a parliamentary majority for the first time since 2002.
