Turkey’s army may come under authority of defence ministry: President Erdogan

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan greets members of parliament from his ruling AK Party during a meeting at the Turkish parliament in Ankara Turkey

"I hope that in Turkey all will proceed well", he said after the inauguration of Erdogan.

Following his election victory last month, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan took oath of office on Monday and announced his new cabinet, marking the official start of a new era in Turkish politics.

Critics say the new system undermines impartiality and could lead to one-man rule with limited checks and balances, especially with a weakened judiciary and parliament.

Just as Ataturk transformed an impoverished nation at the eastern edge of Europe into a secular, Western-facing republic, Erdogan has fought to bring Islamic values back into public life and lift millions of pious Turks - long ostracised by the secular elite - out of poverty.

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said that volatility in the dollar would decrease and that, when it comes to exchange and interest rates, domestic banks would lend support, local broadcasters quoted him as saying on Wednesday.

In a ceremony at the presidential palace in Ankara on Monday, Erdogan named his cabinet, which includes loyalists, technocrats and business figures.

SUPREME SHOWDOWN: Democrat Says Colleagues Will 'ANSWER TO HISTORY' if Kavanaugh Confirmed
Raj Shah, the White House spokesman handling questions about Kavanaugh's nomination, did not immediately respond for comment. Indeed, many commentators have argued that the president "outsourced" the decision to the Federalist Society entirely.

"Most powers will be concentrated in his hands, there will no longer be a prime minister, and nearly none of the checks and balances of liberal democracies will be present".

Turkey has extended the current state of emergency, imposed after the failed 2016 coup, seven times. The coup was followed by a crackdown on members of the bureaucracy, judiciary, armed forces, police, media and academia, with more than 130,000 people dismissed from their jobs or arrested.

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban and former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi were due to attend the ceremony.

The post of prime minister will be scrapped. Under controversial constitutional reforms approved by a referendum previous year, parliament has been weakened and the post of prime minister abolished. "It is a sign that Erdogan will control economic policy even more", Guillaume Tresca, a senior strategist at French bank Credit Agricole, told Reuters. He also promised to take Turkey "much further" by solving the economy's structural problems.

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

"In order to build confidence among both foreign and domestic investors, there must be a narrative which is not divorced from the market reality", said Seda Yalcinkaya, an analyst at brokerage Integral. North Atlantic Treaty Organisation member Turkey's relations with its Western allies have been strained by disputes with the United States over military strategy in Syria and by European Union criticism of Ankara's large-scale purges of state institutions, armed forces, police and media following the failed coup.
