Turkey referendum  – CWEB.com

It was reported that today turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan declares victory in Sunday’s referendum that will grant sweeping powers to the presidency, as Turkey’s main opposition party vows to challenge the results.

Turkey’s pro-Kurdish opposition Peoples’ Democratic party have taken to Twitter to complain about the manner in which the voting took place today. They argue that by reporting that reporting that more results had been counted than was officially the case “manipulated public perception”, while the decision to allow unstamped ballot papers has cast doubt over the result.

Quite amazing to witness 4 mega super powers of the recent past -Turkey Iran China and Russia move in a similar direction in their jingoistic attempt to reconquer past glory over the past decade. Iran goes to elections in May 2017 and Russia in March 2018. Combined with France (May 2017) & Germany (Sept 2017) , the world will never be the same again.
