It is expected that following the decision to quit as the Head of the Turkey’s ruling party and hence to step down from the post of Turkish Prime Minister, Ahmet Davutoglu won’t address the public until May, 22. This day the Turkish Prime Minister is to address the colleagues for the last time at the Congress of the Justice and Development Party (AKP).
The reason for this, most likely, is that Davutoglu doesn’t want his speeches to stir up controversy before the Congress starts. It is also possible that the Turkish Prime Minister wants to avoid the speculations about his statement of resignation.
May, 22 is the last time Ahmet Davutoglu is to address his colleagues at the extraordinary AKP Congress as the leader of the Turkish ruling party.
In addition to the recent meetings with the President of the Republic of Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdogan and the Head of the Turkish Parliament Ismail Kahramanov, the Prime Minister plans to hold meetings and farewell with colleagues.
Ahmet Davutoglu said that following May 22, he would keep monitoring the developments in Ankara, and continue to work on his book. In addition, it is reported that the Prime Minister can get back to work at the university. May, 14 Ahmet Davutoğlu is to join the wedding ceremony of Erdogan’s daughter Sümeyye in Istanbul.
May 5, Ahmet Davutoglu said he quits as the Head of the Turkey’s ruling party and hence steps down from the post of Turkish Prime Minister. Davutoglu decided to stand down on the eve of the Congress of the AKP ruling party, scheduled for May 22.
