President of Türkiye is sworn in for a new term

After taking the oath of office in Congress, Erdogan, who won the presidential election in the second round and will govern for the next five years, went to the mausoleum of the founder of the Turkish republic, Mustafa Kemal Atatürk.

In his speech, Erdogan stressed the importance of unity and brotherhood among all Türkiye citizens, as he vowed to embrace everyone, regardless of their political ideologies or ethnic background.

The president promised to introduce a more liberal constitution in his first speech after taking the oath.

Attending the inauguration ceremony at the Presidential Complex, attended by high-level officials from 81 countries, Erdogan said that Türkiye needs the energy and contribution of all its citizens.

“We need unity and solidarity more than ever. We believe that Türkiye needs a great welcome mobilization on its centenary. For this reason, I invite everyone in our 81 provinces to launch a fraternity campaign, ”he said.

“Türkiye entered a new path after the casting of votes ended and the results were announced. The century of Türkiye has begun and the doors of our country's growth have been opened,” Erdogan said.

Noting that the opposition has rejected all reconciliation offers after all previous elections, the president said he hopes the opposition, including politicians, journalists and everyone else, will make peace with the national will and join him in build the century of Türkiye.
