Turkish Parliament's Constitutional Committee will debate presidential election bill on Thursday.
A committee statement said Tuesday that the debate would begin at 10:30 a.m. on Thursday.
According to the bill, the president is elected by popular vote every five years. A person can be elected president for no more than two terms.
Every Turkish citizen who is eligible to be elected a lawmaker can also be elected president. A person has to be at least 40 years old and a university graduate.
One can be nominated as a president with votes of at least 20 lawmakers. Political parties can nominate candidates for president under certain conditions.
The bill was presented to parliament in 2007, but it was not enacted.
The government revised and re-submitted the bill to parliament in the legislative term that began after July 2011 general elections.
