Ankara — Turkey’s ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) will lead coalition talks on forming a new government with the opposition, Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said Wednesday, warning it would consider every option if discussions failed.

“Only the AKP will lead the coalition talks but if others block the road we will think of every option,” he said in a televised interview after Sunday’s legislative elections, in a veiled reference to possible snap new polls.
