Sept. 27 (Bloomberg) -- Turkey’s ruling Islamic-rooted party and a nationalist opposition group proposed a constitutional amendment to hold early local elections on Oct. 27, 2013, the Anatolia news agency said.

The Justice and Development Party and the Nationalist Action Party submitted a joint petition to the parliament for the necessary amendment, the state-run agency said.

The elections were originally scheduled for 2014, when the country was also expected to hold a presidential vote.
