Erdogan to return to Turkey's ruling party as its chairman

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Sunday was set to return as chairman of Turkey's governing party in a special congress, a key change agreed in the April referendum that approved a host of constitutional changes.

"In my country, they tried to overthrow the state, and we gave 249 martyrs, and had 2,193 injured", said Erdogan, stressing "How dare you ask us to lift the state of emergency?".

President Tayyip Erdogan pledged to fight Turkey's enemies at home and overseas on Sunday as he was elected leader of the ruling AK Party, a move enabling him to reassert his grip on the party and its legislative work. But last month's referendum on the constitutional amendments had removed the requirement that presidents had to be neutral and removed from political affiliation.

With Erdogan as party leader, a major cabinet restructure is expected, with the Hurriyet daily newspaper speculating that eight to 10 ministers could be moved or replaced.

Under the old constitution, the head of state had to sever ties with their political party and Erdogan in August 2014 left the AKP and stepped down as chairman after his election as president.

Thus, Erdogan returns to the command after 998 days of absence and while he is already performing his duties as the president of the Turkish republic.

Erdogan won with 51.4 percent of the vote but most of the new system will not come into force until November 3, 2019.

Erdogan led the party for three terms during his premiership between 2003 and 2014, helping build the AKP into an all-conquering election machine that has yet to be defeated at the ballot box.

Some 150,000 people have been swept up in purges since the coup attempt, including academics, journalists and opposition politicians who've been jailed for months without trial. He also said that Turkey would keep the state of emergency in place as long as needed. "We are not forced to be patient with the EU's two-faced attitude. the European Union needs to make a decision".

Erdogan founded the AK Party in 2001 as a conservative, free market-oriented, Islam-inspired political movement that was an alternative to the long-time domination of rigid secularists - the successors of modern Turkey's founder, Mustafa Kemal Ataturk. "We shall work hard and maintain our humbleness", Erdogan said Sunday.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has formally extended the state of emergency declared after a failed 2016 military coup, saying the decree will remain in place until the country finds "welfare and peace".
