Ahmet Davutoglu on his exit

Davutoglu held a news conference on Thursday after a gathering of the party’s central executive committee.
“I came to the conclusion change in leader of the party and the Prime Ministerial position would serve a better purpose,” he said. “This must be carried out in a peaceful way, keeping with the integrity of the party.”
Holding more than  an hours  crisis meeting yesterday,a criitical for Davutoglu’s future, local media  reported that an extraordinary congress would likely signal his exit at the  congress will be held on May 22.
Media Reports suggest President Erdogan had demanded Davutoglu’s resignation following yesterday’s meeting.”Davutoglu will now have to comply with that demand and stand down at the congress … and there will be a new leader of the AKP.”

 The 14th International Festival of Language & Culture 2016 (IFLC 2016) will be organised for the first time in India. The event will be held on Saturday 7th May 2016 at the Talkatora Stadium in  New Delhi where students from 17 countries (India, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Brazil, Bulgaria, Germany, Kyrgyzstan, Papua New Guinea, Philippines, Tanzania, Tunisia, Ukraine, Hungary, US-TX, Georgia and Russia) will sing and dance together for promoting the message of peace and brotherhood.
The IFLC is being organized here by the Educational Endowment Trust in association with Ministry of Culture, Government of India and UN Information Centre for India and Bhutan.
43 students and 18 mentors from abroad and 350 students from reputed Delhi schools namely Springdale’s School, The Frank Antony Public School, Ahlcon International School, Mata Guruji School, Tagore International School and Bluebells International School will participate in the 14th IFLC with the theme “Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam – ‘The world is one family’.
Mr. Bilal Acikgoz, one of the coordinators of IFLC 2016, said:  “We believe that understanding different languages and cultures helps us understand each other better, and that is the motive behind IFLC.” He also added, “I would also like to share that in India we have seen tremendous talent and potential in the local students. They deserve serious attention of global educational and cultural organisations. I think the international education fraternity should work in close cooperation with their Indian counterparts to provide the opportunities the Indian students truly deserve. The Educational Endowment Trust itself is keen to explore the talents of Indian students in other parts of India as well, especially in states like Maharashtra, UP, Punjab, Tamil Nadu and Uttarakhand.”
IFLC is a global effort to facilitate a cordial engagement between the young change makers from different parts of the world. For the first time, the Indian capital, New Delhi, will host it where school students from all over the world will sing, dance and act to promote universal harmony and brotherhood at Talkatora Stadium.

When Barack Obama entered office in January of 2009, expectations were high. His campaign had suggested that he would be a transformational President but soon that ambition was diminished in domestic infighting and the never ending violence in the Middle East. Still, President Obama made good on his promise to “reintroduce America to the world” and established new parameters for Foreign Policy debates and decision making in the United States. Please join us for a review of his legacy and a look ahead to 2017.
