Turkey's high election board has proposed November 1 as a date for possible snap parliamentary elections, ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) officials said on Thursday.

Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu formally ended attempts to find a junior coalition partner on Tuesday after weeks of talks with opposition parties failed, handing the mandate back to President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and making a snap election almost inevitable.
