„Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu is expected to step down after losing a market-roiling power struggle with President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, clouding the country’s economic prospects and imperiling its relations with the European Union. … Prior to last night’s meeting, Davutoglu planned to tell Erdogan that the president needed to respect the premier’s office or he’d call an emergency party convention, according to the person. The outcome suggests the two men failed to bridge their widening rift.
The showdown comes less than a week after the ruling party’s board stripped the premier of the power to name local branch heads. That move was orchestrated by party rivals while Davutoglu was in Qatar, the person said.“ (Bericht auf der Wirtschaftsnachrichtenseite Bloomberg: „Turkey Premier Said to Give Up as Erdogan Tightens Grip“)
