Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said on Tuesday he will not allow the legitimacy of the presidency to be debated in coalition negotiations, drawing a line in the sand with potential government partners.

Davutoglu has said the ruling AK Party will exhaust all options to form a government before it will consider an early election. The AKP, which took just short of 41 percent in a June 7 parliamentary election, needs to find a junior partner to form a majority government.
