- Despite compromising on a unity candidate, NA efforts will be marred by internal squabbles.
- The pro-Kurdish Peoples' Democratic Party will likely support Kilicdaroglu.
- Opposition parties may fail to gain the two-thirds legislative majority needed to restore the parliamentary form of government.
