Erdoğan Has Sworned in as Turkey’s President

Erdoğan has completed the oath, officially becoming Turkey’s 12th president. The Turkish National Anthem is then played at Parliament’s General Assembly.

Erdoğan takes the oath (The full text is below). Erdoğan enters the General Assembly. Speaker Çiçek presents the presidential mandate. “I will conduct this ceremony,” Çiçek declares, prompting opposition deputies to walk out of the General Assembly. “I will conduct this ceremony whether you join or not.” Deputies of the main opposition CHP file an objection to Parliament Speaker Çiçek, claiming that there is a mispleading in Erdoğan’s refusal to resign as prime minister before taking the presidential oath. Parliament Speaker Cemil Çiçek announces a 2-minute roll call. Most members of Parliament are already present.

The oath that Erdoğan is taking, as written in Turkey’s Constitution, reads as follows: “In my capacity as president I swear upon my honor and integrity before the Turkish Grand National Assembly and before history to safeguard the existence and independence of the State, the indivisible integrity of the country and the Nation and the absolute sovereignty of the Nation, to abide by the Constitution, the rule of law, democracy, the principles of the secular Republic, not to deviate from the ideal according to which everyone is entitled to enjoy human rights and fundamental freedoms under conditions of national peace and prosperity and in the spirit of national solidarity and justice, and do my utmost to preserve and exalt the glory and honor of the Republic of Turkey and perform without bias the functions that I have assumed.” Erdoğan’s motorcade leaves his Ankara residence on his way to Parliament. Erdoğan is expected to walk through in Parliament on this red carpet before taking his presidential oath. After being sworn in, he will lay a wreath at Atatürk’s mausoleum before a takeover ceremony at the presidential palace.

    I do not know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else encountering problems with your blog.
    It looks like some of the written text within your content are
    running off the screen. Can somebody else please comment and let me
    know if this is happening to them as well? This might
    be a problem with my web browser because I’ve had this happen previously.
