On July 9, Erdogan was sworn in and appointed a new 16-member Cabinet, including his son-in-law Berat Albayrak as treasury and finance minister.
Turkey's new government announced late on Monday the appointment of former chief of staff General Hulusi Akar as defence minister, a rare transition from military ranks to the political realm.
