ISTANBUL - A Turkish parliamentary commission recommended on Tuesday that President Abdullah Gul's term should expire in 2014, in a move to end confusion over the duration of his term, the state run Anatolian news agency reported.

Gul was elected president, a largely figurehead role, with the support of ruling AK Party parliamentarians in 2007, but there had been doubt over whether his term would last for five or seven years.

Parliament still has to ratify the recommendation by its constitutional commission.

The change could be significant for the ambitions of Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan, the most powerful politician in Turkey.
