Turkey's prime minister is stepping down after long opposing the increasing control from Turkey's president.
Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu — who was hand-picked by President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan in 2014 — said, "My loyalty to the president will last till the end."
Technically, a prime minister in Turkey has more power than the country's president.
