Turkish Finance Minister Resigns

November 9, 2020

ERBIL - Turkish Finance Minister Berak Albayrak, who is also the son-in-law of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, announced his resignation on Sunday.

The Turkish minister pointed out in a statement on his Instagram that he was stepping down due to health reasons, as well as, dedicating more time to his family.

'After serving in ministerial posts for nearly five years, I took the decision not to continue my duty [as the finance minister] due to health issues,' Albayrak wrote on Instagram.

The 42-year-old politician previously served as the minister of energy for nearly three years.

'I will spend time with my mother, father, wife and children, whom I have neglected for many years out of necessity and who have never spared me their support,' he added.
