Turkey's Erdogan Outlines Vision For Hands-on Presidency As Election Looms

by Wochit 0:48 mins

Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan made one of his strongest calls yet for the country to "make a jump" towards a presidential system, saying Sunday's election will nurture people's enthusiasm for the kind of executive presidency he has long sought. His vision for a strong, hands-on president sets him in sharp contrast with his main rival, Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, who has warned against an executive-style system, arguing that the head of state should be impartial and rise above the turbulence of daily politics. The stark difference between the two main rivals' visions for the role of the president means the Sunday election is not only about choosing who should be Turkey's 12th President but also how that President should rule.
