ISTANBUL - Turkey's ruling AK Party is set to win a third consecutive term in an election on June 12 but its share of the vote will be below the 46 percent scored in the 2007 poll, according to a survey published on Tuesday.

The survey by polling company DORInsight showed support for Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan's AK at 39 percent.

Its results stood in stark contrast to those by other better known Turkish pollsters, whose surveys showed the AK carrying between 45-50 percent of the vote.

A socially conservative and economically liberal party, the AK's strength is based in large measure on its success in driving the economy to new heights while providing political stability.
