On 19 October 2015, the cabinet was changed as three of the ministers from the CTP were replaced. Hasan Başoğlu, the Minister of Finance, was replaced by Birikim Özgür. According to Kalyoncu, this was due to Başoğlu's request for removal from his post because of his health problems. Önder Sennaroğlu, the Minister of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Food was replaced by Erkut Şahali and Aziz Gürpınar, the Minister of Interior and Labor by Asım Akansoy. Kalyoncu gave the reason for these replacements as "making the cabinet younger".[2]
