Turkey referendum: Exit poll shows majority back more powers for president

Lynsey_ADMIN_Lynsey_ADMIN_ Administrator
The country votes of 18 constitutional changes which would effectively replace its parliamentary system of government.

Exit polls show the "yes" campaign to grant Turkey President Recep Tayyip Erdogan new powers is ahead, according to reports.

State-run Anadolu news agency said votes in favour of allowing 18 constitutional changes stood at 57% with just over half of ballots counted.

The changes would replace Turkey's parliamentary system of government with a presidential one and could see Mr Erdogan remain in office until at least 2029.

Opinion polls had shown a narrow lead for a "yes" vote before Sunday's ballot.

    Turkey referendum: Opposition to demand recount of 60% of votes


    Turkey's main opposition party has said it will call for a recount in up to 60% of votes as exit polls show the "yes" campaign to grant President Recep Tayyip Erdogan new powers is narrowly ahead.

    State-run Anadolu news agency said votes in favour of allowing 18 constitutional changes stood at 51.3% with 98% of ballots counted.

    The changes would replace Turkey's parliamentary system of government with a presidential one and could see Mr Erdogan remain in office until at least 2029.

    Presidential sources claimed that Mr Erdogan has said the result of the referendum is clear.

    Opinion polls had shown a narrow lead for a "yes" vote before Sunday's ballot, but the country's three largest cities - Istanbul, Ankara and Izmir - and the mainly Kurdish southeast looked set to vote "no".
