As a result of this comparison we made shows that two presidents, president of turkey and France of president, are nearly same power. Our system is not semi-presidential system yet. But our president has a power like French president. And this leads to conflict in executive body. This outcome shows us that semi-presidential system has a danger for executive body. There may be tension between president and prime minister.This is experienced in the case of different party president and the prime minister.If it comes from the same party president and prime minister,semi-presidential system turns to a presidential system.
If it comes from the different party president and prime minister,semi-presidential system turns to parliamentary system.From the first period also began to Gaulle’s, there is majority of different political groups against president, he dissolve parliamentary and then new election is made.Pompidou reactthe President elected by the people regarding the results of the referendum held in 1962 and then Gaulle lowered Pompidou government.After that, the events of May 1968 in the first election,it is rejected referendum regarding limited senate and local government duties, he resigned in 1969.
Gaulle applied this method, and then this method has become customary. However,Mitterrand era began in the period of cohabitation. In other words,president and prime minister are reconciled. This topic isn’t included our topic, because we are responsible for 5.french republic in 1958-1980 years.
