Davutoglu to Form Interim Gov’t

Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu was appointed to form an interim government on Tuesday that will lead the country to a new election on November 1.
Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan formally called for a new election late Monday, following an inconclusive vote in June, and the collapse of coalition-building efforts, AP reported.
Turkey’s election board confirmed that the election will take place on November 1. Davutoglu has five days to form a temporary Cabinet, which would include opposition party legislators to oversee the poll.
However, two main opposition parties have already declared they would not participate in the interim administration.
The opposition accuses Erdogan of triggering a new election in the hope that his ruling Justice and Development Party can win back the parliamentary majority it lost in June and again rule alone.
Opinion polls, however, suggest that the new election may not reverse AKP’s losses and another hung parliament is a possibility.
Davutoglu is now likely to form an administration made up of independent figures and legislators from Turkey’s pro-Kurdish political party who would be taking up ministerial posts for the first time in Turkish history.
