Appointments hint that leader’s third decade in office may see move towards orthodox economic policy

The Turkish president, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, announced his new cabinet after a lavish inauguration ceremony on Saturday, marking the beginning of his third decade in office with appointments intended to hint at a move towards orthodox economic policy and muscular diplomacy.

At a swearing in where he attempted to strike a unifying tone in contrast with much of his campaign, Erdoğan said: “We will embrace all 85 million people of Turkey, regardless of their political view, roots, creed or sect.”
