The Nationalist Movement Party (MHP), chaired by Devlet Bahçeli, and as the faction that suggested İhsanoğlu as the joint candidate to the CHP still seems calm. According to political scientist Orçun Ersay from Galatasaray University, the reason lies behind why the MHP does not face similar conflict, is the tripartite balance of power composed of the leader, the party organization and the doctrine, which is still strong.
According to Political Scientist from Gazi University and columnist Hüseyin Yayman this intra-party conflict will not lead changes to replace chairman Kılıçdaroğlu. ''This conflict will lead to a very tense debate in CHP but I assume that Kılıçdaroğlu will keep his position.'' Yayman also believes that CHP needs to assess this election result seriously otherwise they will face with greater election defeat in 2015.
