Republican People's Party (CHP) leader Deniz Baykal and Democratic Left Party (DSP) leader Zeki Sezer criticized the prime minister's comments on the election alliance of their parties Saturday, with Baykal accusing Recep Tayyip Erdoğan of being out of control.

Erdoğan, speaking at his Justice and Development Party's (AKP) rally in Van on Friday, said: "If you combine 40 rotten eggs, you cannot get one fresh one," in reference to the election cooperation of the two parties.

Speaking at DSP headquarters on Saturday, Baykal said: "It is upsetting to see that the prime minister of the country is so out of control. I wish him good health."
