Overheard in AK Party corridors
Before his visit to Brussels, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that the first priority after the changes to the party and the constitution would be a new plan for governance. “It won’t be a roadmap that lasts until the end of the year. It will be a one that will continue until 2019,” he said. Erdogan will have two roadmaps not one. One will be prepared by the ministries, and the other will be Erdogan’s political roadmap. The government’s roadmap will be prepared in the holy month of Ramadan and announced to the public by Erdogan ... Erdogan has already hit the ground running in order to survive a surprise in 2019. Therefore, he will personally supervise the roadmap that will be prepared by the proposals coming from the ministries. The engine of the roadmap will be economy. That may be the reason why some circles utter Ali Babacan’s name once again. However, it is said that the president chose a system based on growth, production and development instead of an economic policy based on the fiscal discipline of Babacan and Mehmet Simsek. Accelerating the megaprojects and supporting small and medium-sized enterprises and qualified industrial products with new incentives will take place.
