ISTANBUL - Turkey's ruling AK Party is on course for a resounding third consecutive election win on June 12, with support at 48.6 percent, according to a survey published on Wednesday.

That figure, in a survey by pollsters Konsensus published in Haberturk newspaper, would mark an increase from the near 47 percent which it achieved in the 2007 vote and is sharply higher than a figure quoted in a poll a day earlier.That survey by polling company DORInsight had shown support for Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan's AK Party at 39 percent, well below the level of better known pollsters which generally put its support at between 45-50 percent.

The success of the AK Party, an economically liberal but socially conservative party, has been driven by strong economic growth in near nine years in power which has brought the country prosperity.
