Turkey’s new parliament will have its first plenary session at 3 p.m. local time [1300GMT] on Tuesday five days after the country’s Supreme Election Council revealed the final official results from the Nov. 1 general election.
President Recep Tayyip Erdogan will attend the ceremony during which deputies of the 26th Grand National Assembly will be sworn.
The Republican People's Party's (CHP) Deniz Baykal -- as the parliament’s oldest MP (77) -- will preside over the assembly as the acting speaker. He will hold that position until a new speaker is elected.
Before the plenary session, Baykal will lay a wreath before the Ataturk monument in the Grand National Assembly at 2 p.m. local time [1200 GMT].
The next stage sees the new lawmakers select the 27th parliament speaker via secret ballot.
Candidates for the position will submit their applications after the first plenary session and the oath-taking ceremony. The deadline for applications is Nov. 21.
