FORA.tv Speaker - Vecdi Gonul
Vecdi Gonul was elected to the Turkish parliament for Kocaeli on 18 April 1999, and was always one of the leading lights of the ruling AKP, a candidate for party leadership when Tayyip Erdogan was barred from entering parliament, and in 2007 was a candidate for President of Turkey. As his wife is not head-scarfed, Gonul was often seen as the moderate face of the Islamic-leaning AKP.
He became minister of defense on 19 November 2002.
