Turkey's new PM Ahmet Davutoglu set to reveal cabinet

Turkey’s new prime minister Ahmet Davutoglu is expected to unveil his cabinet line-up on Friday.

The former foreign minister has taken up the top job after Recep Tayyip Erdogan was sworn in as the country’s president.

No Western leader was at Erdogan’s inauguration, with relations having soured during the last years of his premiership.

Opponents fear his presidency will mean more authoritarian rule.

Turkey’s main opposition leader also boycotted the swearing-in ceremony. And when an MP was refused a debate, a rule book was thrown at the speaker.
