‘Reform cabinet’ to be established in Turkey: Deputy PM
AA PhotoTurkey’s new government will be a reform government so as to enable the country to attend the high-income club, Deputy Prime Minister Cevdet Yılmaz has said, adding a separate senior official position may be created to oversee the reform agenda.
Yılmaz said the required reforms were connected to more than one institution and the coordination of these separate units in the direction of one target may require the supervision of a deputy prime minister.
“We hope that we’ll realize the planned reforms in a more efficient way through this mechanism,” he said in an interview with TRT Haber on late Nov. 22.
He said Turkey needed the realization of a number of critical reforms and the new government would also be a reform cabinet so as to enable the country to rise to a higher-income level.
“I don’t know whether it will be for us to realize, but we mentioned in our election statement that a deputy prime minister will be responsible for overseeing the reform process and a ‘reform task force’ will also be established under his/her coordination in a rapid manner,” he said.
With the establishment of such a mechanism, the realization of the required reforms was aimed as soon as possible, he noted.
