Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is taking on extensive new executive powers following his outright election victory in yesterday's poll.
 
Parliament has been weakened and the post of prime minister abolished, as measures approved in a controversial referendum last year take effect.
 
Defeated opposition candidate Muharrem Ince said Turkey was now entering a dangerous period of "one-man rule".
 
Erdogan polled nearly 53% in the most fiercely fought election in years.
 
Ince received just 31%, despite a lively campaign attracting huge crowds.
 
Erdogan has presided over a strong economy and built up a solid support base by investing in healthcare, education and infrastructure.
 
But the 64-year-old has also polarized opinion, cracking down on opponents and putting some 160,000 people in jail.
