"As the AK Party, we agreed to offer Sivas Deputy Ismet Yilmaz as Turkish parliament speaker candidate," Davutoglu, also chairman of the AK Party, told a press briefing in the Turkish capital, Ankara.

Davutoglu said two names had stood out during the in-party consultations: Ismet Yilmaz and Education Minister Nabi Avci. He said he held separate talks with both.

"I presented my opinions on both of our colleagues, and then we decided on one name after at our central executive board this morning," said the prime minister.
