Turkish referendum aftermath

Turkish referendum aftermath

On 16 April, a referendum on a “Turkish-style” executive presidential system in Turkey produced a narrow victory for Yes, although the No camp refused to concede and said it would challenge the outcome.

In a number of appearances the following day on the BBC, Michael explained how the Turkish electoral authorities’ decision regarding a missing official stamp had led to widespread claims of electoral fraud in the vote.

He also explained how the new “Turkish-style” executive presidency system would make it a lot harder to scrutinise the office holder of the presidency.
