ISTANBUL - Turkey issued a decree on Wednesday transferring some powers to the president, in line with the country's move to an executive presidential system brought about by last month's presidential and parliamentary elections.

The decree, issued in the country's Official Gazette, brought about changes in laws dating from 1924 to 2017 changing references to the prime minister and cabinet of ministers to the president and the president's office.
