Turkey: Erdogan calls for new government 'as soon as possible'

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has urged all sides to put aside their egos and form a government

Baku.11 June. REPORT.AZ/ In his first public remarks since the general elections were held in Turkey, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said a new government should be formed "as soon as possible".

Report informs referring to the Anadolu Agency, addressing a graduation ceremony of international students in Ankara Thursday, Erdogan said: "Everyone should put aside their egos and avoid the onus of leaving Turkey without a government and a leader".

The president also called for respecting the will of the Turkish people.

"The election result reflects the national will; everybody should respect it. The results show that no single party majority is available. I hope every political party evaluates the results carefully," he said.

In Sunday's general election, none of the four parties elected to the Turkish Grand National Assembly could achieve the majority necessary to form a single-party government.

About the coalition options available to the political parties, Erdogan hoped that the parties would choose a path of settlement within constitutional boundaries instead of crisis.

The president also pledged to carry out his duty during the coalition talks process, saying: "The result without (a single party) majority does not mean Turkey will be left ungoverned".

"Anybody who leaves Turkey without a government cannot answer to our nation or to our history," he said.

On Tuesday, Erdogan accepted the cabinet's resignation submitted by the Prime Minister and AK Party Chairman Ahmet Davutoglu. The cabinet was asked to continue its duties until the formation of a new government. He is expected to ask Davutoglu to form a government after the parliament convenes.
