AKP, opposition agree to work on constitutional changes
The aim of all parties was to draft a new constitution after the abortive July 15 coup
Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said on Monday that political parties had found enough common ground after a failed coup to pass a limited number of constitutional changes.
The aim of all parties was to draft a new constitution after the abortive July 15 coup, Yildirim said at a news conference after a cabinet meeting chaired by President Tayyip Erdogan. The government, opposition parties, nongovernmental organisations and media had all come together, he said.
The gendarmes and coast guard, which were under the command of the Turkish armed forces, would now report to the civilian interior ministry, Yildirim told reporters.
