Erdogan Almighty: Turkey elections hand president enhanced powers
Date created : Latest update :
This time, Recep Tayyip Erdogan truly has unbridled power. Turkey's leader of 15 years won re-election with an outright majority in Sunday's first round to become the first president with enhanced executive powers. How will he use those new powers, powers borne of the constitutional reform he pushed through last year? At 64, Erdogan is now set to become Turkey's longest-serving leader of the modern era, eclipsing the republic's founder Mustafa Kamal Ataturk.
