Türkiye's new Cabinet, announced by President Recep Tayyip Erdogan after his reelection on May 28, will hold its first meeting on Tuesday.
Ahead of the meeting at the presidential complex in the capital Ankara, the president and Cabinet members visited Anitkabir, the mausoleum of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, founder of the Turkish Republic.
Erdogan wrote in the mausoleum’s memorial book that the Cabinet will hit the ground running with the goal of building the “Century of Türkiye” by holding its first meeting today.
"As the president of Türkiye, together with our Cabinet, we will serve all of Türkiye and all of its 85 million people with love,” he wrote.
"I hope we will make this year, in which we experience the excitement and justified pride of reaching the 100th anniversary of our republic, which you have entrusted to us, the starting point of our growth period," he added.
Relief and rebuilding efforts in the quake-hit southern region, economic measures, the fight against terrorism, and border security will be among the session's priority issues.
Türkiye went to the polls on May 28 for a presidential runoff after no candidate secured more than 50% of the vote needed for an outright victory in the first round on May 14.
Erdogan won the race with 52.18% of the vote, while opposition candidate Kemal Kilicdaroglu got 47.82%, according to official results.
Erdogan on Saturday unveiled his new Cabinet after his inauguration in Ankara.
