Hasan Faruk USLU [1]

44 30

Bu çalışma Cumhurbaşkanının ilk defa doğrudan halk tarafından seçildiği Ağustos 2014’ten yürütme organı açısından Cumhurbaşkanlığı hükümet sistemini getiren 2017 yılındaki anayasa değişikliği referandumuna kadar Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’ın Türkiye Cumhuriyeti Cumhurbaşkanlığı makamındaki liderlik performansını irdelemektedir. Siyasal bağlamlarına da dikkat ederek, çalışma yeni süreçlerin ve uygulamaların yürütme organına nasıl yerleştirildiğini incelemektedir. Çalışmada, Cumhurbaşkanı Erdoğan’ın uygulamaları kurumsal genişleme çerçevesine yerleştirilmeye çalışılarak literatüre katkı sağlanması hedeflenmektedir. Makale Türkiye örneğine uygun olarak kurumsal genişlemenin tezahürlerine dair anlamlı göstergeler önermektedir. Çalışmanın temel iddiası Erdoğan’ın Cumhurbaşkanlığı makamını kurumsal, siyasal, sembolik ve finansal olarak genişlettiğidir. Bu kurumsal genişleme süreci 2018’de yürürlüğe girecek olan anayasal olarak cumhurbaşkanlığı sistemi ile doruğa ulaşmıştır.

This article scrutinizes the leadership performance of Recep Tayyip Erdoğan at the office of the Turkish presidency from the first direct presidential elections of August 2014 to 2017 constitutional referendum which introduced an executive presidential system. It examines the new processes and practices becoming embedded in the executive politics of Turkey paying due regard to the political contexts. It aims to contribute to the literature by locating president Erdoğan’s practices into the institutional stretch arguments. The article provides meaningful indicators tailored to the Turkish case for the manifestation of institutional stretch. The main argument of the article is that Erdoğan has stretched the presidential office institutionally, politically, symbolically and financially. This institutional stretching culminated in a constitutional executive presidency which will enter into force in 2018.
