Erdogan to take army and intelligence under control

The Turkish president Recep Erdogan intends to put the Armed Forces and National intelligence organization under his own control.

On 28 July Erdogan met with top Turkey's MPs. He also appealed to opposition for support, calling to make necessary amendments in the Turkish constitution to resubordinate the structure.

For the time being the army and intelligence of Turkey are subordinated to Prime Minister, according to the main law of the country.

Head of the Turkish government Binali Yıldırım, in his turn, held the first meeting of the country's Supreme military council after the coup d'etat attempt. Two more top Turkish generals had been dismissed two hours before it.
