Milliyet, May 5, 2016
Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu looks set to be replaced, after months of growing tension with President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
Davutoglu, who is head of the governing AKP, met Erdogan on Wednesday night, in a move that fueled reports that the power struggle between the two men had reached its apex. Davutoglu is expected to hold a press conference today to clarify the situation.
Istanbul-based daily Milliyet, a paper reportedly close to Erdogan, welcomed the news as "a new era for the AKP" on the front page of its Thursday edition.
Milliyet ("The Nation") is a major Turkish language daily published in Istanbul. It was founded in 1950. It is owned by the DemirÃ¶ren Holding conglomerate, and its political alignment is considered center-left.
