Recep Tayyip Erdogan has taken the oath of office as Turkey's first popularly elected president, a position that will keep him in the nation's driving seat for at least another five years. Erdogan is scheduled to appoint Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu, his designated successor as prime minster and loyal ally, to form a new government later on Thursday. Erdogan has dominated Turkish politics for a decade and won Turkey's first direct presidential elections on Aug. 10. He has indicated he wants to transform the presidency from a largely ceremonial post into a more powerful position and his expected to hold sway in the country's running.
