Since Tuesday, the prime minister has been making efforts to form a provisional government that will run Turkey until early election is held on Nov. 1.
The June 7 election saw a stalemate with no party winning the majority necessary to form a single party government. Coalition talks between the Justice and Development (AK) Party and the other three parliamentary parties had not produced any result.
All but one party -- the pro-Kurdish Peoples’ Democratic Party -- had refused to join the caretaker government.
There are 25 ministry positions in the Turkish government. Three vital portfolios -- interior, transport and justice -- will be allotted to non-partisan figures while 11 posts were to go to the AK Party with opposition parties supposed to take the remaining 11.
