ISTANBUL - Turkey's ruling AK Party was on course to win 331 seats or 53 percent of the vote in Sunday's parliamentary election based on 50 percent of the vote counted, broadcaster CNN Turk said.

The AK Party would be able to push ahead with plans for a new constitution with a large enough majority to call a referendum if it won more than 330 seats. The center-left CHP was on 23.6 percent while the nationalist MHP was on 13 percent, exceeding the 10 percent threshold required for parties to enter parliament, CNN Turk said.
