Turkey's Good (İYİ) Party, led by Meral Akşener, seems to be growing stronger every day, as its support level has reached 19.3 percent, according to leading pollster KONDA’s September survey.

The main opposition Republican People's Party (CHP) on the other hand would garner 24.8 percent of the votes, if there were an election today, Medyscope reported on Oct. 6, citing the results of the KONDA survey.

These two parties in the Nation Alliance, the CHP and Good Party, therefore increased their votes by 2.8 percent to 44.1 percent in total in September, surpassing the support level for the People's Alliance.

The People's Alliance, consisting of the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) and Nationalist Movement Party (MHP), would receive 41.6 percent of the votes, if the elections would be held today.

President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan may have set rewinning the elections in the 2023 presidential elections as his main target, but the poll results suggest that this will not be easy.

Some 64 percent of survey participants said that it would be a “negative” outcome if Erdoğan were to win in the upcoming elections.

The AKP's support level saw a decrease from 36.1 percent to 32.7 percent from July to September, while the MHP's support level decreased to 8.9 percent.

As for the Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP), its support level saw an increase of 0.5 percent from July, reaching 11.7 percent in September.

The smaller parties -- including Felicity Party, the far-right Great Unity Party (BBP) which is a coalition partner of the People's Alliance, Future Party and Democracy and Progress Party (DEVA) -- saw their support level increase by 0.5 percent to 2.6 percent in total.
