 ANKARA - Turkey's parliament approved on Friday a proposal to hold presidential and parliamentary elections on June 24, more than a year ahead of schedule, after President Tayyip Erdogan said they should be held early.


Parliamentarians from the opposition pro-Kurdish HDP party walked out of parliament in protest before the vote. The remaining deputies all supported the motion.
