Turkey’s New Premier Wins Vote of Confidence

Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim’s government on Sunday won a vote of confidence in parliament as well as approval for his legislative program, parliament speaker, Ismail Kahraman, said.
Yildirim is a close ally of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and a co-founder of the ruling AK Party. He was declared prime minister after his election as the new leader of AK Party at a party congress, Reuters reported.
The appointment marks another step in Erdogan’s plan to create a full presidential system in Turkey.
Yildirim replaces Ahmet Davutoglu, who said he was stepping down after weeks of tension with Erdogan.
Kahraman said the result was 315 votes for approving the government and 138 against.
