Turkish referendum: ‘Yes’ on 57 percent with half of ballots counted

Votes in favour of Turkish constitutional changes that could give President Tayyip Erdogan sweeping new powers stood at 57 percent with just over half of ballots counted, the state-run Anadolu news agency said on Sunday.

Data cited by Anadolu showed a high percentage of “Yes” votes in central Anatolia, while “No” votes led in coastal regions near the Aegean Sea and Turkey’s mainly Kurdish southeast.
