Turkish president-elect Tayyip Erdogan nominated Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu as the next leader of the ruling AK Party and his future prime minister on Thursday. The AK Party will vote on Davutoglu's nomination at a congress next Wednesday, but he is unlikely to be opposed. Erdogan, who will be sworn in as head of state on August 28, has made clear the new party leader will be his prime minister.
