Majority disagrees with transport minister in HDN poll
Hürriyet Daily News
AA photoAn overwhelming 60 percent said they did not agree with Turkey's transport minister when he said Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan should become the country’s next president.
Thirty-three percent said they wanted Erdoğan to become the president while 7 percent were undecided.
Current President Abdullah Gül's term in office remains unclear as the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) has said Gül was elected for a seven-year term while the main opposition Republican People's Party (CHP) claims a 2007 legal change that reduced the president’s term from seven years to five years should apply to Gül as well, meaning that his term would end this year.
