Turkey's Transport Minister, Binali Yıldırım, said he would favor Erdoğan as a presidential candidate, Habertürk reported.
Binali said it was "pointless" to discuss what was to come after the presidential elections, and it was still unknown who would lead the Justice and Development Party (AKP) afterwards despite comments favoring President Abdullah Gül's return to the party’s leadership.
"We have so much to do," Binali said, "there is no point in confusing ourselves further by all this [speculation]."
