The ruling Justice and Development Party (AK Party) is readying itself for its May 22 emergency convention that was called after Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu announced his resignation last week. Party governance head Mustafa Ataş, who is also a member of the convention preparation committee, has called on all party members to suggest a single nominee for party chairman, who will also become prime minister. The first survey took place yesterday, and Ataş told all AK Party provincial heads, deputies, Central Decision and Executive Board (MKYK) members and the party's founding members to forward a single name. According to AK Party sources, the final round of the survey will take place at party headquarters today by the convention committee.
It will ask deputies, MKYK members and the party's founding members who they would like to see as AK Party chairman. Although it has not been confirmed whether Davutoğlu will attend the meetings or not, the AK Party administration has agreed to carry on the party tradition of consultations before choosing or announcing a candidate.
