Turkey's prime minister said Tuesday he would not tolerate any attempt to undermine President Tayyip Erdogan's authority during the AK Party's talks to form a coalition government.Such negotiations would not include a debate on the role of the presidency, Davutoglu said, which may give pause to opposition parties concerned about Erdogan's outsize political influence.Erdogan stepped down as prime minister last year and assumed the presidency with the aim of transforming a largely figurehead position into a powerful executive post.
