    One of the main opposition parties vying for a share of Sunday's votes is the pro-Kurdish People's Democratic Party, or HDP.

    Although Kurds make up only 17 percent of the electorate, HDP's performance could have a decisive impact on the election.

    Al Jazeera's Mohamed Vall reports from one of the party's biggest strongholds in the southeastern city of Diyarbakir.
