ISTANBUL (Reuters) – Turkey has issued a decree transferring some powers to the president, in line with its move to an executive presidential system resulting from last month’s presidential and parliamentary elections. The decree, issued in the official gazette, makes changes to laws dating from 1924 to 2017, altering references to the prime minister and cabinet of ministers to the president and the president’s office. The changes in the latest decree will take effect when Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who was voted into the powerful executive presidency on June 24, takes the oath of office, expected in parliament on July 8 or 9.
