Following President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's return as chairman of the ruling Justice and Development Party (AK Party), Prime Minister Yildirim has been unanimously voted as parliamentary group chairman during a closed parliamentary group meeting on Wednesday.
Axar.az reports citing Daily Sabah.
Erdogan's return to the party became possible through changes approved in constitutional reform referendum on April 16, which allows a president to retain affiliation with a political party.
Since Erdogan represents the executive branch, former chairman Yildirim assumed the role of parliamentary group chairman, who leads the lawmakers in the legislative branch.
