Referendum in Turkey: What Lies Ahead?

In a referendum held on Sunday April 16, Turkish citizens narrowly voted in favor of a series of constitutional amendments that will transform the country's parliamentary system of government into an «executive» presidency. In practice, the result expands the powers of the office presently held by its head of state, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan. On top of the highly contentious process which culminated in the referendum, the ad hoc procedural modifications on the day of voting caused widespread suspicion of electoral fraud and sparked outbursts of protests. What do these mean for Turkey's democracy? In this week's MENA Salon we will reflect on the political future of a country in the midst of a transformation.
