Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan presented a new list of cabinet ministers to President Abdullah Gul on Wednesday after three ministers stepped down over an investigation into a massive corruption and bribery scandal, Turkish media reported.
It was unclear if more than the resigned ministers had been replaced. Erdogan is expected to make a statement later amid the spiraling corruption scandal.
Environment minister earlier became the third cabinet member to resign and called on the prime minister to step down as well.
“I am stepping down as minister and lawmaker,” Erdogan Bayraktar told the private NTV television. “I believe the prime minister should also resign,” AFP reported.
