Turkish Referendum: Will dictatorship follow?

President Erdogan goes to the polls in a bid to gain sweeping new powers, but many fear authoritarian rule is around the corner.

Turks go to the polls on Sunday to vote in a referendum which will shape the future of their country.

They will decide whether to dramatically increase the powers of their President Recep Tayyip Erdogan - nine months after an attempted military coup.

It would mean Turkey no longer has a prime minister or cabinet and the President would be able to issue executive orders and new laws.

He would also be able to appoint whoever he wanted to help him run the country.

The ruling AK party say Turkey's parliamentary system hasn't worked.

    Of course, Erdogan would never even consider rigging the vote.  This referendum is in the bag.

    If the politicians treat people this poorly when they're armed to the teeth,

    just imagine what they'll be willing to do once they've disarmed everyone.

  • One of the available flavours of dictatorship will surely be chosen.  If something else is ever invented, I hesitate to name Turkey as the place of its inception.
    People in this world look at things mistakenly, and think that what they do not understand must be the void. This is not the true void. It is bewilderment.
