Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutolu and his cabinet resigned today, a routine post-election procedure in Turkish politics.

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan approved the resignations, which came after the Justice and Development Party (AKP) lost its majority in the general election on 7th June, and requested that the cabinet continue its duties until a new government is formed.

Davutoglu resigned as prime minister in a cabinet meeting with President Erdogan attending, Dogan News Agency reported.

In Ankara the talk is of possible coalition scenarios, after the AKP lost its right to solely govern the country when it lost a significant number of seats.
