Davutoglu: Turkey's bookish PM battling for political future

Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu pictured in Ankara on October 28, 2015Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu’s mild-mannered demeanour belies his abilities as a tough negotiator and strategic thinker who has been at the heart of government since Recep Tayyip Erdogan first came to power in 2003. Often branded a “puppet” prime minister with strongman Erdogan pulling the strings, Davutoglu has been under pressure as leader of the once-insurmountable AKP to show a political vigour that can match the shrewd and dogged charisma of the premier-turned president. Under the 56-year-old Davutoglu, the AKP for the first time in 13 years failed to win a majority in parliament in the June election.
