Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Bekir Bozdag said on Thursday that the president would be elected by public vote in 2014 and it was called semi-presidential system.

"Turkey will keep advancing on its path as a different Turkey after the presidential election in 2014," Bozdag told AA correspondent.

Election of president by popular vote would be the first in the history of Turkey, he said.

Bozdag said that a de-facto semi-presidential system would appear together with president's authorities set in the Constitution.

Turkey should continue on its way with a sound system, he said.

Turkey would adopt the presidential system one day, he said, adding that if Turkey adopted such system at the right time, then the country would win.

Presidential election system was one of the constitutional issues on which a compromise should be reached, he said. Bozdag said the ruling Justice and Development (AK) Party could not put it into practice on its own, stating that it needed 367 seats in the parliament.

AK Party has 326 seats in the parliament.
