Turkish PM, Davutoglu Resolves To Quit Office MayLatest News, World News Thursday, May 5th, 2016
BALTIMORE, MD (AFRICAN EXAMINER) – Following his political difference with the President, Turkish Prime Minister (PM), Ahmet Davutoglu has resolved to quit his position late May, this year.
He is expected to resign at an extraordinary congress of the ruling AK (Party) slated for May end.
The PM’s relationship with the Turkish President Erdogan went sour when the former disapproved the President’s plans to change the Asian country to a Presidential system of government.
Despite his difference and resolution, PM Davutoglu has pledged to be loyal to the President, declaring that he did not begrudge anybody. He specified he would continue as a party Legislator and would not attempt to divide the ruling AKP.
Earlier Thursday, one of the Davutoglu’s aide, Cemil Ertem, added an intriguing twist to the emerging development, when he hinted that there would be no snap elections due to appointment of a new leader.
The aide mentioned on a Turkish TV that the country and its economy would stabilise further when a Prime Minister closely aligned with President Erdogan assumes office.
On Wednesday, PM Davutoglu met with President Erdogan for aabout two hours to reach truce on their political views, but the parley ended in a stalemate.
Davutoglu’s successor will be chosen when the congress meets Sunday, May 22, 2016.
