Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan was proclaimed the winner June 25 of a landmark election that ushers in a government system granting the president sweeping new powers and that critics say will cement what they call one-man rule.

The head of Turkey’s Supreme Election Council, Sadi Guven, declared Erdogan the winner early in the day after 97.7 percent of votes had been counted.

The new system of government abolishes the office of prime minister and empowers the president to take over an executive branch and form the government. He will appoint ministers, vice presidents and high-level bureaucrats, issue decrees, prepare the budget and decide on security policies.

“The nation has entrusted to me the responsibility of the presidency and the executive duty,” Erdogan said in televised remarks from Istanbul.

Earlier in the day, Erdogan supporters waving Turkish flags gathered outside his official residence, chanting, “Here’s the president, here’s the commander.” (AP)
