Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is all set to take oath and announce his Cabinet under new presidential system today.
The June 24 vote marked Turkey’s transition to an executive presidential system of government, doing away with the prime minister’s post, among other changes.
Erdogan won an absolute majority in the presidential election with 52.5% of the vote, according to Turkeys Supreme Election Council (YSK). The ceremony will be attended by 22 heads of the states and 28 prime ministers and parliament speakers from different countries as well as representatives from Turkey, Anadulo news agency reported.
Some 10,000 police officers backed by helicopters will be deployed for the security of the inauguration ceremony. (QNA)
