Turkey's ruling Justice and Development (AK) Party’s Central Decision and Administration Board decided on Friday that the party will not propose to change Turkey’s current electoral system.

Deputy Chairman Huseyin Celik said that an executive board meeting of the ruling AK Party had resulted in the decision that future elections will go by the current electoral system.

Prime Minister Erdogan had previously spoken about the Turkish government working on a new election law that would divide the country into 550 single member districts.

Currently, the country has 85 districts and 550 members of parliament.

Celik added that the party will also not change the deputies’ three-term limit in office.
