European Court of Human Rights cannot challenge Turkish referendum results – Erdogan

Lynsey_ADMIN_Lynsey_ADMIN_ Administrator
Challenging the results of Turkey’s referendum that extended the president’s powers is well beyond the jurisdiction of the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR), Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said, adding that the issue is “over.”

Erdogan stressed that Turkish Supreme Election Board’s (YSK) decision to reject referendum annulment requests filed by a number of opposition parties and some ordinary citizens is the final one and cannot be challenged by any other institution.

“This issue is over,” he said, as cited by Turkish daily Hurriyet. He particularly stressed that the matter is neither within the authority of the Turkish Constitutional Court nor within the jurisdiction of the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR).
