Turkey's nationalist opposition rejected a coalition with the ruling AK Party and refused to support a minority government Monday, further complicating Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu's efforts to break a debilitating political deadlock.After meeting with Nationalist Movement Party (MHP) leader Devlet Bahceli for more than two hours, Davutoglu said the two men had been unable to find common ground.Davutoglu said Bahceli had also made clear his party would vote against any proposal for the current government to lead Turkey to an early election if it were to be put before parliament, making it difficult for Davutoglu to resolve the crisis before the Aug. 23 deadline.
