"With the power granted to us by the new presidential system, we will be getting quicker and stronger results", he said as new members of parliament began to take their oath of office. For some, it is the coronation of a new Turkey. "Turkey is leaving behind a system which cost the country politically, socially and economically".
King Mohammed VI also expressed his determination to continue to work with the Turkish President with the aim of reinforcing the bonds and boosting them to the level of the aspirations of the peoples of the two countries.
Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu, Interior Minister Suleyman Soylu and Justice Minister Abdulhamit Gul have retained their portfolios in the new cabinet.
As Turkey's first executive president, Erdogan now can rule by decrees, outline the state budget and announce a state of emergency.
Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said emergency rule wouldn't be extended after July 18, but that may be a technicality. The president will be able to select his own cabinet, regulate ministries and remove civil servants, all without parliamentary approval.
