[UPDATE] Turkish Parliament votes to start debate on constitutional amendment

Must read

The Turkish Parliament began debate on a constitutional amendment that will expand President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s powers, after 338 deputies voted in favor during a secret vote on Monday.

One hundred thirty-four deputies voted against starting the debate in Parliament.

The Justice and Development Party (AKP) government is planning to introduce a presidential system in Turkey to replace the country’s current parliamentary system.

Critics say the switch to a presidential system, under which current President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan will have more executive powers, will create one-man rule in the country.
