ANKARA - Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan "gave the impression" he is open to all coalition possibilities, a senior opposition lawmaker said after meeting with him on Wednesday.

Deniz Baykal, who headed the Republican People's Party (CHP) until 2010, also told reporters after a two-hour meeting with Erdogan that the president understands the importance of forming a government quickly.

The AK Party, Turkey's biggest party, has a mandate to try and form a coalition to rule after it failed in Sunday's vote to win a majority to form a government on its own.
