Breaking: Davutoglu and his cabinet out
Another anti-Semite bites the dust.
The entire cabinet has gone with him
"Mr President accepted today the
resignation of the cabinet that was presented by Mr Prime Minister Ahmet
Davutoglu," Erdogan's office said in a brief statement.
President, who thanked the cabinet for its services so far, asked the
cabinet to remain in charge until a new government is formed."
The resignation of the cabinet was widely expected as a procedural move after the elections.
was not clear if Davutoglu was authorised by the president to embark on
a tour of talks with opposition parties to form a coalition government.
Since it came to power in 2002, the AKP has ruled Turkey as a one-party
government, with a big majority in the 550-seat parliament.
The beginning of the end for Erdogan and the AKP? We can only hope.
