Turkey Government - TravelPuppy.com
Under the constitution of 1987, legislative power is vested in a single chamber, the 550-member National Assembly, which is directly elected by comparative representation for a 5 year term.

The National Assembly elects both a prime minister (usually head of the largest party in the assembly) and a president, who is head of state and serves a 7 year term, between whom executive powers are shared.
