Turks Vote to Decide on Erdogan’s Political Ambitions

Updated on

Millions of Turks went to the polls on Sunday to decide on more than just a new parliament. They were asked to vote on whether to give President Recep Tayyip Erdogan a mandate to transform the political system.

The ruling AK Party that Erdogan led for more than a decade before becoming president in August says it wants to rewrite the constitution to shift power from the parliament to an executive-style presidency.
