Turkey goes to polls

Pollsters mainly expect the AKP, bolstered by economic stability in the country, to grab an easy victory with a minor loss of votes compared to its 47 percent showing in the 2007 elections.

Among a population of some 73 million, more than 50 million voters were eligible to cast their ballots Sunday in almost 200,000 polling stations nationwide, to renew the 550-seat parliament.
