Turkish PM Ahmet Davutoglu Resigns After Parliamentary Election
Turky’s Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu has resigned with his cabinet after the Sunday’s parliamentary election but President Recep Tayyip Erdogan urged him to continue his duties as PM until new government is established.
The ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) remained unsuccessful to win required seats as acquired 40.9 per cent of the vote so in this case they have the option of forming a coalition government or attempting to rule as a minority government.
However, Kurds’ Peoples Democratic Party (HDP) who has beaten them with prominent lead and hence Prime Minister Davutoglu decided to quit government with cabinet after facing the bad defeat in the election.
On the other hand, a statement issued from Tayyip Erdogan’s office in which it states that according constitution PM and his cabinet has the right to quit after the election but President asked him to perform duties until next government is shaped.
Statement from Erdogan’s office, “Mr. Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu presented the resignation of the cabinet and Mr President accepted the resignation— Mr. President, who thanked the cabinet for its services, urged the cabinet to remain in charge until a new government is formed.”
Little interest has been appearing from the three opposition parties for joining the AKP in coalition for days but until now not any statement issued from Justice and Development Party yet.
Though, there is no chance coming out for coalition but if wouldn’t happen so President has the right re-election.
However, the right-wing Nationalist Movement party has refused it, though its leader Devlet Bahceli advised the AK Party and pro-Kurdish, leftist Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP) or the AKP, HDP and second-placed Republican People’s party should attempt to create a coalition.
Remember that the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) could only sacked only 41 percent votes and bad defeat by Kurds’ Peoples Democratic Party who took prominent lead and celebrating their triumph.
