    The comment comes after the Turkish media reported on Friday that the Turkish leader had said that Germany under the leadership of Adolf Hitler was an example of a presidential system which was able to maintain the unitary nature of the state.

    "Yes, there are no reasons not to have presidential system in an unitary state. There are such examples in the world and there have been such examples in the past. When you look at Hitler's Germany, you will see it," Erdogan told reporters, as quoted by the online news portal T24, when asked if the presidential system was able to maintain the unitary structure of the state.
