Four new names as Davutoglu announces cabinet
No time has been wasted for the formation of Turkey’s new government With Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu at the helm, the newly-minted Cabinet has been announced today.

Davutoglu introduced the list of his Cabinet to President Recep Tayyip Erdogan before noon on Aug. 29 and it is expected that the list will be approved later today.

Only four new names have been introduced in the new government, while the economy administration remained untouched.

The Foreign Ministry seat left vacant by Davutoglu’s nomination as prime minister was handed to Turkey's former EU Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu.

Deputy Prime Ministers Besir Atalay and Emrullah Isler have been replaced by Yalcin Akdogan and Numan Kurtulmus. Atalay was a key figure in the peace process for the Kurdish problem. Akdogan, a close confidant of Erdogan, is expected to take over Atalay's duty.

The only "dramatic" change in the Cabinet is in Customs and Trade Ministry, with the name of Hayati Yazici being crossed in favor of Nurettin Canikli, the ruling Justice and Development Party's (AKP) Deputy Parliamentary Group Chair.
