ISTANBUL — Turkey's prime minister appeared ready Thursday to bow out of elections later this month, paving the way for President Recep Tayyip Erodgan to consolidate power amid complaints from opponents over his increasingly hard-line policies.
Such a move by Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu would mark another potential step by Erodgan to move Turkey toward a presidential system and reduce the powers of parliament — further cementing his authority and likely stirring more outrage from rights groups and others critics.
