Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan (DOWN) speaks to parliament 31 August 2007 in Ankara. Erdogan pledged today to draft a new, liberal constitution and focus on reforms to strengthen both the economy and Ankara's bid to join the European Union.  Erdogan's Justice and Development Party (AKP) has already started work on drafting a new basic law to replace the current one, the legacy of a military coup in 1980.
