  • Turkey swears in President Erdogan

Erdogan, the AK Party and MHP candidate, won the June 24 presidential election with 52.5 percent of the vote.

Transition of Turkey from the parliamentary form of government to the presidential one can be considered the peak of political reforms in the country.

"We, as Turkey and as the Turkish people, are making a new start here today", he told the dignitaries and thousands of guests.

Under the new decree, Erdogan will decide on the promotion of top army officers including colonels, brigadier generals, admirals and generals in the Turkish armed forces. Foreign Minister will remain Mevlut Cavusoglu.

Amir H H Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani with Sudan's President, Omer Al Bashir and former president of Turkey, Abdullah Gul, during the inauguration ceremony of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. "Both are about the main political choices of the government regarding how Turkey integrates with the outer world and how these choices will help it fix its broken image in the eyes of the worldwide community", Demirtas said.

Originally published by a popular satire weekly magazine, the cartoon was the subject of a defamation lawsuit by Erdogan 12 years ago, when he was Turkey's prime minister. Under controversial constitutional reforms approved by a referendum previous year, parliament has been weakened and the post of prime minister abolished.

Its commentator Asli Aydintasbas wrote: "I don't think it would be an exaggeration to say that we entered a "second republic" era", after the republic set up by Turkey's secular founder Mustafa Kemal Ataturk.

Earlier, the government issued a decree adjusting Turkey's laws to the new presidential system that comes into effect with the elections.

Those changes concentrate more power in the hands of the president.

In other words, Turkey will be an institutionalised autocracy.

The ceremony was attended by 22 heads of state, Prime Ministers and speakers of parliaments of 28 countries, as well as heads of six worldwide organizations.

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban and former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi were due to attend the ceremony. Ties with the United States and other North Atlantic Treaty Organisation partners also frayed, but Turkey remains crucial for any hope of stability in Syria and Iraq and curbing refugee flows to Europe.

Erdogan will face immediate and major challenges in his second term, posed by an imbalanced if fast-growing economy and foreign policy tensions between the West and Turkey, a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation member.

Erdogan said on Saturday that he would tackle "the structural economic problems" of high interest rates and inflation and a wide current account deficit. What "is certain", said Ertem, is that the governors will be appointed by the president.

Mr Erdogan, who was re-elected last month, vowed to "propel our country forward" with his sweeping new powers.
