From today’s Wall Street Journal:
ISTANBUL—Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said on Thursday that he will step aside after 20 months in office, a move that solidifies President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s unrivaled position as leader of a country at the epicenter of some of the world’s biggest crises.
“We thought that we would have a four-year relationship,” he said in remarks addressed to the party’s supporters. “That this lasted shorter is, rest assured, not of my choosing, but because of necessities that have emerged.”
When bedfellows breakup in Turkey
the reasons they give are quite murky.
They often compare
to puffs of hot air,
or slices of musty beef jerky.
