    Turks voted for Erdugan

    Turks have voted to grant President Recep Tayyip Erdogan sweeping new powers in a referendum, partial official results indicate.

    With about 96% of ballots counted, "Yes" was on 51.5% and "No" on about 48.5%.

    Erdogan supporters say replacing the parliamentary system with an executive presidency would modernise the country.

    Opponents have attacked a decision to accept unstamped ballot papers as valid unless proven otherwise.

    A "Yes" vote could also see Mr Erdogan remain in office until 2029.

    About 55 million people were eligible to vote across 167,000 polling stations, and turnout is said to have been high.

    They would represent the most sweeping programme of constitutional changes since Turkey became a republic almost a century ago.

    Mr Erdogan would be given vastly enhanced powers to appoint cabinet ministers, issue decrees, choose senior judges and dissolve parliament.

    The new system would scrap the role of prime minister and concentrate power in the hands of the president, placing all state bureaucracy under his control.
