In a statement that surprised even his critics, Mr Erdogan responded to arguments that putting political power in the hands of the presidency would not work in a “unitary state”.
He said there were other examples of its being successful. “There are already examples in the world,” he said.
“You can see it when you look at Hitler’s Germany. There are later examples in various other countries.”
Hitler, of course, was Chancellor (akin to PM) and then Fuhrer, but never President.
On the other hand, do I think Erdogan is arguing for an Enabling Act? Yes, I do…..
