Turkey ruling party seeks ejection of Davutoglu
Turkey’s ruling Justice and Development Party (AK Party) wants to eject former prime minister Ahmet Davutoglu and three other lawmakers, a senior official said.
Davutoglu has previously criticised AKP policies and government economic management.
At today's meeting, the AKP’s central executive committee demanded that Davutoglu, along with Ayhan Sefer Ustun, Selcuk Ozdag and Abdullah Basci, be dismissed from the party, the official, who asked not to be named, said, Reuters reported.
The party’s disciplinary council is expected to rubber-stamp that in the next few days.
