Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu hailed the new cabinet announced on Friday, which he said represented every color of the country.

"I am of the opinion that we have formed a good cabinet where every color from Turkey has been represented," Davutoglu said in Ankara on Friday.

He said that the results of the new cabinet would be beneficial. 

The interim cabinet includes lawmakers from the Justice and Development (AK) Party, Nationalist Movement Party (MHP) and pro-Kurdish Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP), but not the Republican People's Party (CHP).

The prime minister said that the interim cabinet was a "constitutional government" and not a government of AK Party.

In remarks made after the announcement of the cabinet, Deputy Prime Minister Yalcin Akdogan said that this was neither a coalition government, nor an AK Party government.

“This is a government formed by each deputy out of constitutional necessity and a sense of political responsibility,” he said.
