Istanbul (AFP) –


Turkey's ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) will hold an extraordinary congress this month, the CNN-Turk and NTV news channels reported Wednesday, amid growing uncertainty over the future of Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu.

Davutoglu, who held an over 90-minute meeting with President Recep Tayyip Erdogan earlier amid reports of a split between the two leaders, will hold a news conference on Thursday following a gathering of the party's central executive committee, the official Anatolia news agency added.
