‘Yes’ side leads referendum vote count in Turkey

Turkey's state-run news agency says that “yes” votes are leading in Turkey’s referendum on expanding presidential powers.

The Anadolu Agency says an estimated 38 per cent of votes were tallied and the "yes" side stands at nearly 60 per cent of the tally, reports AP.

If the "yes" vote prevails, the 18 constitutional changes will replace Turkey's parliamentary system of government with a presidential one, abolishing the office of the prime minister and granting sweeping executive powers to the president.

Critics say the move grants too sweeping executive powers to President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
