President Buhari Congratulates Erdogan On Election Victory

Parliament has more influence in new system Yildirim

Mr Erdogan has led Turkey for 15 years already but the constitutional changes which came into effect when he took the oath of office Monday give him new authority to rule by presidential decree and to assert control over the judiciary.

The inauguration in parliament after Erdogan's June election victory will be followed by a lavish ceremony at his palace attended by dozens of world leaders marking the transition to the new executive presidency system.

The president said the new system makes the marginalization, persecution, and alienation of people a thing of the past.

Tayyip Erdogan was sworn in again as Turkey's president on Monday, assuming sweeping powers he won in a referendum past year and sealed in a hard-fought re-election victory two weeks ago.

Rescue mission chief Narongsak Osottanakorn said it had resumed, with divers re-entering the cave at 11am local time (4pm NZT). The new stage started around 11 a.m. local time (midnight ET), and operations halted at night, a source confirmed to CBS News.

Speaking to a host of Turkish and foreign dignitaries at the presidential complex in the capital Ankara, Erdogan said: "With a presidential system of government, we are moving to a new system of government which is far beyond our nearly 150-year-quest for democracy and what we have experienced through the history of our 95-year-old republic".

Abolishing the post of prime minister, the president will now form the government, appoint ministers, vice presidents and high-level bureaucrats, issue decrees, prepare the budget and has the power to impose a state of emergency.

Erdogan's ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) on Saturday nominated Yildirim as parliament speaker, an appointment likely to be rubber-stamped by the chamber on Thursday.

He won re-election on June 24, with 52.59 per cent of votes.

Six hundred lawmakers from seven political parties also observed a moment of silence to pay respect to the Turkish Republic's founder Mustafa Kemal Ataturk.

Together with the officers and guests of the ceremony, some 10,000 people are expected to take part.

No major Western leader featured on a list of 50 presidents, prime ministers and other high-ranking guests published by state news agency Anadolu. Turkish citizens from all walks of life, including teachers, firefighters, village heads, tradesmen, miners and dentists have been invited. His entry to the presidential complex will be greeted with a 101-gun salute. Also, a special stamp was printed to mark the day.

Presidents of Bulgaria, Georgia, Macedonia, Moldova, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Kosovo, Pakistan, Kyrgyzstan, Sudan, Guinea, Zambia, Guinea Bissau, Equatorial Guinea, Somalia, Mauritania, Gabon, Chad, Djibouti and Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, as well as Emir of Qatar, attended the inauguration.
