Irish prime minister secures re-election after 10-week stalemate

06 May 2016 10:06:45

By Padraic Halpin and Conor Humphries DUBLIN (Reuters) - Enda Kenny was re-elected Ireland's prime minister on Friday to end 10 weeks of political deadlock, when his party's biggest rival abstained to usher in the first minority government in decades -- and one many believe will be short-lived. After suffering heavy losses at the Feb. 26 election, Kenny's center-right Fine Gael party returned to power with the backing of nine independent lawmakers and facilitated by its main rival, Fianna Fail, which agreed to abstain from opposition on key votes until the end of 2018. "The government I lead will be a very different kind of administration formed in almost unprecedented circumstances," Kenny told parliament after 59 of its 157 members -- one more than he needs to be assured of passing legislation -- backed him on the fourth attempt in two months.

06 May 2016 09:58:01

Jettisoning PM, Turkey's Erdogan marches to one-man rule

06 May 2016 09:55:56

By letting go of his prime minister after just 20 months in the post, Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has shown his iron will to create a presidential system where one man has total authority. Ahmet Davutoglu, who served as premier since Erdogan became president in August 2014, in his farewell statement vowed undying loyalty to the Turkish strongman and never to utter a "single word" of criticism against him. Davutoglu, foreign minister from 2009 to 2014, is a heavyweight within the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) and observers say isolated but serious policy disputes proved too much for Erdogan.
