President Lungu attends Turkish President Erdo?an’s inauguration

Erdoğan sworn in as Turkish president with enhanced powers

There is a two-term limit on the office of the president, so he could effectively stay in power until 2028.

After the swearing-in ceremony, Mr Erdogan visited the mausoleum of the founder of the Turkish Republic, Mustafa Kemal Ataturk before proceeding to the Presidential Complex to make his inaugural speech.

"Albayrak becoming the finance minister is not a good sign especially because of his close relationship with President Erdogan".

"Turkey is entering a new era with the presidential oath ceremony on Monday", Erdogan told his ruling AK Party at the weekend.

Erdogan will face immediate and major challenges in his second term, posed by an imbalanced fast-growing economy and foreign policy tensions between the West and Turkey, a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation member.

Emre Erdogan, professor of political science at Istanbul's Bilgi University, said the parliament's powers were "highly restricted" under the new system.

Erdogan appointed his son-in-law as Turkey's finance minister on Monday hours after taking his oath of office.

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey has expressed satisfaction and pride over the strengthening of Moroccan-Turkish bilateral ties.

Prime Minister Binali Yildirim now goes down in history as the 27th and final holder of the post in Turkey. Erdogan has described the consolidation as a means to eliminate governmental inefficiency, and his base views his consolidation of authority as a deserved outcome for a leader who has instilled Islamic values in public life, according to Reuters. The Turkish lira dropped three percent on the news, but rebounded slightly on Tuesday.

On the eve of Monday's inauguration authorities dismissed more than 18,000 state employees - majority from the police and army - in what the government said would be the final decree under emergency rule imposed following a failed 2016 coup.

The lira currency, which has been battered this year by concerns about President Tayyip Erdogan's drive for greater control over monetary policy, declined after the changes were published. As head of the executive branch, Erodgan will have the power to issue decrees with the force of law, prepare the budget subject to parliament's approval, dissolve parliament and call for new presidential and parliamentary elections, and appoint high-level officials, including ministers and some top judges. "In other words, Turkey will be an institutionalized autocracy".

Erdogan said he would publicize his cabinet picks later on Monday. In 2016, a coup to depose him failed.

"For the cabinet appointments in the past several years, the most important issue has been the presence of the current deputy prime minister, Mehmet Simsek", said Inan Demir, a senior economist at Nomura International.

The Turkish president also kept Mevlut Cavusoglu in place as foreign minister and named Fuat Oktay, a former Turkish Airlines executive, as vice president. Inflation surged last month above 15 per cent, its highest level in more than a decade, even though the central bank has raised interest rates by 5 percentage points since April.
