Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım said that his party is ready to accept main opposition Republican People's Party (CHP) Chairman Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu's statement suggesting switching from the current parliamentarian system to an American-style presidential system. Hours after Yıldırım's statement, the CHP leader responded by backtracking from his acceptance of an American-style presidential system. Speaking during the parliamentary group meeting of the ruling Justice and Development Party (AK Party) on Tuesday, Yıldırım challenged Kılıçdaroğlu's opposition to the idea of changing the current system and reminded Kılıçdaroğlu that he had given a green light to a system change.In a televised interview last week, Kılıçdaroğlu said, "If you are going to bring a presidential system like the one in the U.S., then go ahead and bring it. But he [President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan] does not want to do that. There are laws, governments and local administrations." Yıldırım said his party will accept the idea and that the country should not waste such an opportunity.
