Beyond the Headlines podcast: Turkey's future under an empowered Erdogan
In this episode, we assess the future of the Turkish government and we hear from Reem Al Hashimy the UAE's Minister of State for International Cooperation
With a decisive — however manufactured — election result, incumbent Turkish president Recep Tayipp Erdogan now moves forward with a mandate to form a new government in Turkey.
Though there are many questions from the opposition and humanitarian groups about the legitimacy of the democratic process, Mr Erdogan will lead Turkey for at least another five years.
How will this government take shape, with the role of prime minister being phased out and a consolidation of executive power to Erdogan's office?
In this episode of Beyond the Headlines, we assess how a newly empowered Erdogan will shape the Turkish government. We also hear from Reem Al Hashimy, the UAE's Minister of State for Humanitarian Coordination, about the UAE humanitarian effort in Yemen.
