European leaders respond cautiously to Turkey vote
Turkey s referendum campaign was conducted on an "unlevel playing field" and the vote count itself was marred by late procedural changes, global observers said on Monday.
According to unofficial results, it was a narrow win for the "Yes" camp that included President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's ruling AKP and the nationalist opposition party MHP with 51.4% of the vote. Under the changes, President Erdogan could stay in power through 2029.
Sources in Erdogan's office said on Sunday that he told Prime Minister Binali Yildirim he was grateful to the nation for showing its will at the polls.
The pro-Kurdish opposition Peoples' Democratic Party said it presented complaints about unstamped ballots affecting 3 million voters, more than twice the margin of Erdogan's victory.

He said he was even willing to appeal to the European Court of Human Rights.
Under the changes, most of which will only come into effect after the next elections due in 2019, Turkey's governance will be transformed from a parliamentary system to an executive presidency. Mr Erdogan and his supporters say the changes are needed to amend the current constitution, written by generals following a 1980 military coup, confront the security and political challenges Turkey faces, and avoid the fragile coalition governments of the past.
Under the proposals, the office of prime minister would be abolished, allowing the president to draft the budget, declare a state of emergency and issue decrees overseeing ministries without parliamentary approval.
