( Cihan ) - Turkish President Ahmet Necdet Sezer completed his seven years of mandate as the 10th president.
However, as the parliament failed to elect a new president, Sezer will remain on the post in accordance with Article 102 of the Turkish Constitution that until a new president is elected the previous one stays at the post.
Sezer was elected on May 16 2000 with 330 votes of the lawmakers in the third round of the presidential elections at the parliament. He took over the post from the ninth President Suleyman Demirel.
Until May10 2007, Sezer vetoed 67 of 1088 law bills that were presented to him.
Thus, Sezer got the title of the president with most vetoes.
