Ankara / After winning on Sunday the presidential elections in Turkey, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, assumes full executive power during a five-year term in the country.
Recep Tayyip Erdogan, re-elected this Sunday in the presidential elections with 52.6 percent of the vote, has promised to fulfill all his electoral promises.
With the new presidential system, decided in a referendum last year and that from now on has full force, the figure of the prime minister is abolished, while the president assumes full executive power for a term of five years.
“I say openly that we understood the message that the nation has sent to our party. We will comply with what remains to be done”, he said in a speech in Ankara, broadcasted live on NTV.
“Immediately after swearing in, we will appoint ministers and administrative personnel,” he added.
Erdogan’s mandate is five years, as well as the 600 deputies who were also elected this Sunday.
Erdogan has expressed his gratitude to all the voters and especially to the decisive support provided by Devlet Bahçeli, head of the right-wing Nationalist Action Movement (MHP).
In fact, the Erdogan’s party, which governs Turkey since 2002, the Islamist Justice and Development (AKP), has lost the absolute majority by obtaining 293 of the 600 parliamentary seats, but will legislate thanks to the 50 deputies of the MHP, with the one that has formed the coalition Cumhur (Public).
Among the priorities of his next term, Erdogan stressed “fighting with even more force against terrorist organizations.”
He has also indicated that his victory will also serve “to liberate the territory of Syria and send Syrian friends back to their country, in confidence and security,” referring to the more than three million refugees that host Turkey.
The Supreme Electoral Commission of Turkey has certified the victory of Erdogan with an absolute majority in the presidential elections on Sunday, after the scrutiny of 97.7 percent of the vote. (June 25, 2018, EFE/Practica Español)
