Two politicians who recently joined the ranks of the ruling Justice and Development Party (AK Party) were assigned to senior positions after a reshuffle of the party's administration earlier this week.
Voice of the People Party (HAS Party) leader Numan Kurtulmuş, who joined the AK Party through a merger of the two parties, and a former leader of the Democrat Party (DP), Süleyman Soylu, assumed crucial roles in the AK Party, which is undergoing a restructuring following the party's latest congress.
Kurtulmuş was named deputy chairman of the AK Party, responsible for economic affairs, while the former DP leader was appointed deputy chairman to lead research and development projects.
The two names were added to the party roster at the AK Party's fourth ordinary congress, held on Sunday in Ankara.
