Turkey's Justice and Development Party celebrates 16th anniversary
Turkey's ruling Justice and Development Party will mark its 16th anniversary in Ankara with the expected attendance of former ministers, mayors, and AK Party founders, including former President Abdullah Gül and former Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu
Invitations were also sent out to those who have worked and contributed to the AK Party; namely, all former ministers, mayors, and AK Party founders, including former President Abdullah Gül and former Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu who are expected to be in attendance, the Daily Sabah reported.
The AK Party has been going through a transformative era since President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan returned to his party in late May. Erdoğan had resigned from party membership in 2014 as he geared up for the presidential elections. After constitutional changes were approved in the April 16 referendum, the president applied for membership to the AK Party, and he was re-elected as party chairman on May 21.
