Azerbaijan, Baku, June 14 / Trend /
Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has today dismissed Turkey's 60th government, CNN Turk reported .
According to legislation, a new government must be formed by the Justice and Development Party (AKP), which won the parliamentary elections.
Turkey 's ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP), headed by Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, won a foreseen solid victory in the country's parliamentary elections held on Sunday. Erdogan's party collected 50 percent of the votes after a 99 percent ballot count.
In light of these results Erdogan's party will get at least 330 seats in the new parliament, enabling a formation of a single-party government. However, despite ruling party representatives' repeated claims, it cannot adopt a draft of new constitution at the parliament. Nor can a referendum on the constitution be made.
According to the Turkish Constitution, the government must be formed within 45 days of the president's corresponding authorization is given to the party leader.
