Turkish PM Resigns After Losing Majority In Parliamentary Elections
After accepting his gesture, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdğgan has asked Davutoğlu to stay on until a new government is formed. Erdoğan is now expected to give Davutoğlu the job of forming a new coalition government.
The result came as a blow to Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s plans to boost his office’s powers.
President Erdoğan, who first came to power as prime minister in 2003, had been seeking a two-thirds majority to turn Turkey into a presidential republic.
