Turkey's new President Recep Tayyip Erdogan takes oath of office at the parliament in Ankara, Turkey, Thursday, Aug. 28, 2014. Erdogan was sworn in as Turkey's first popularly elected president, a position that will keep him in the nation's driving seat for at least another five years. Erdogan was scheduled to appoint Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu, his designated successor as prime minster and loyal ally, to form a new government, following ceremonies at the presidential palace. Just before Erdogan took the oath of office in parliament, legislators from Turkey’s main opposition party left the hall in mass in protest of the man they accuse of not respecting Turkey’s constitution.(AP Photo/Burhan Ozbilici) less
