Erdogan's comments, in an interview with Bloomberg Television in London, reinforced long-standing concerns about the president's drive to shape monetary policy and blunt the central bank's ability to rein in double-digit inflation.He said the central bank was independent but would not be able to ignore signals from the head of the executive once the switch to a presidential system was complete following the June vote.Turkey has called snap presidential and parliamentary elections for June 24 and polls show Erdogan as the strongest candidate to win the presidential vote.Erdogan said that citizens would ultimately hold the president responsible for any problems generated by monetary policy.
