NEW GOVERNMENT SYSTEM BEGINS IN TURKEY AFTER PRESIDENT ERDOGAN TAKES OATH


Erdoğan took his oath in parliament after being elected as the country’s president in the June 24 elections, in which he garnered 52 percent of the votes.

After his swearing-in on July 9, the system change — stipulated by the 18-article constitutional amendment which was approved by the April 16, 2017 referendum — has gone into full effect.

Ministeries merged, new offices established under new system

With the changes, the Labor, Social Services and Family Ministry, Industry and Technology Ministry, Commerce Ministry, Agriculture and Forest Ministry, Youth and Sports Ministry, and Treasury and Finance Ministry were formed, while the EU Affairs Ministry and Foreign Ministry have merged under the Foreign Ministry.

The “presidential governmental system” has abolished the Prime Ministry and transferred all executive authority of the Prime Ministry office to the president, who will have sweeping powers, from appointing state officials to declaring state of emergency by presidential decrees, lacking considerable monitoring by parliament.

With the new system, there will be a number of offices that will work under the president and will implement the presidency’s projects.

A total of 65 existing boards, commissions and committees established with laws and other regulations are merged under nine entities, namely Social Policies Council, Law Policies, Security and Foreign Policies, Local Governments, Health and Food, Economy, Education and Science/Technology/Innovation.

The president will chair the boards, but there will be an acting chair for each of them. The boards will propose policies, oversee the implementation of the policies and take macro decisions that are beyond the responsibilities of the ministers.

The eight directorates will include the Directorate of General Staff, Directorate of National Intelligence, and Directorate of Religious Affairs. The Directorate of Strategy and Budgeting will be launched for the first time. It will be in charge of preparing the budget and will be overseen by the president. The Directorate of Communication will organize all media and communication activities.

All undersecretary offices will be abolished and some of them will be named as directorates.
