As the Kurdish militancy issue is dragging more pressure on the Turkish executive branch at a time the region is rocked by massive instability, Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu is stepping down because of differences with the President.
That move is taking place right after Prime Minister Davutoglu appeared as instrumental in the Turkish-EU immigration agreement.
The Prime Minister has also ruled out running as the leader of the AKP.
To understand that political struggle for unconditional power, one must remember that President Erdogan had set up a group of loyalist within the AKP. The difficulties he came accross with his Prime Minister pushed him to consider other alternatives for the AKP’s leadership. Erdogan wants someone in that position that will be more amenabled to him.
