Debate over the government system has occupied Turkey’s political and constitutional agenda for many years. Yet the discussions that have taken place have not, until very recently, progressed beyond the level of popular discourse. In the last quarter of 2016, however, the possibility has emerged of debating the government system in a concrete way through the proposal of a constitutional amendment. This proposal, the product of negotiations between the AK Party and MHP, seems to be elaborated on a design that considers the interplay of presidential systems in relation to legislative, executive, and judiciary powers. In this article, the basic features of the proposed government system are addressed in comparison with various examples from around the world.
