Erdoğan, after the first meeting of the new cabinet: Together, we will build the "Century of Türkiye" vision
As reported by Anadolu Agency, Türkiye's President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said that 85 million Turkish citizens would build the "Century of Türkiye" vision together.
After the first meeting of the new cabinet in Ankara, Erdoğan said, "Pay close attention to these two words. We will be the implementers of these two words, two concepts. One of them is stability, and the other is trust. With stability and trust, we will build the Century of Türkiye.”
Türkiye's President Erdoğan won a new five-year term as head of state after winning the second round of the presidential election on May 28 and unveiled his new cabinet after an oath-taking ceremony on Saturday. Previously, the first round of presidential and parliamentary elections was held in Türkiye on May 14.
Erdoğan stated, "The people of Türkiye as a whole have won these elections with us. We will continue to embrace each and every one of Türkiye's 85 million citizens, regardless of the results."
Explaining how the nation continued to uphold its will and future with record-breaking election turn-out, Erdoğan remarked that Turkish democracy set a benchmark for the entire world.
"The constitutional amendment proposal we introduced to the agenda prior to the elections will be evaluated at the upcoming session of the Grand National Assembly," Erdoğan said, emphasising that the new cabinet's job was not a simple one, but he noted that he was determined to overcome and resolve the problems and difficulties facing the state and its citizens, including inflation.
In addition, Erdoğan announced that an uncompromising policy would be pursued to address the challenges faced by the residents of the southern regions of Türkiye, which were struck by devastating earthquakes in February.
Before today's session began, Erdoğan and members of the Presidential Cabinet paid a visit to Anıtkabir, the mausoleum of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, the founder of the Republic of Türkiye, and observed a moment of silence.
