Turkish election commission rejects calls to annul referendum

Turkey's top electoral board will consider objections Wednesday to the way the country's referendum was run, according to Turkey's semi-official Anadolu news agency.

Trump's congratulations on Monday were in contrast with European Union leaders who have been reserved in their reaction to the narrow victory and even his own State Department, which earlier noted concerns expressed by worldwide observers over the "uneven playing field". "Every time we spoke to one another, I have become more hopeful", he said.

"Our regret is not over the outcome of the referendum, but because of the desire to overlook clear and harsh violations of the law that have the potential to impact the results", it said.

Bulent Tezcan, deputy chairman of the opposition Republican People's Party, or CHP, said the party filed a formal request seeking the referendum's annulment due to voting irregularities.

He said the Supreme Election Board decided not to deem ballot papers without official seals invalid, paving the way for electoral fraud.

Monitors from the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, who also listed numerous problems, said the move undermined important election safeguards.

The European Union also urged a probe into the poll fraud claims after worldwide observers voiced concerns, but US President Donald Trump called his Turkish counterpart to offer his congratulations.

In contrast with the EU's muted reaction, Trump called Erdogan to "congratulate him on his recent referendum victory", a White House statement said. learnt that Erdogan won 51.3 per cent of the votes in a referendum on Sunday to grant him sweeping powers in the biggest overhaul of modern Turkish politics.

While those who voted "Yes" on Sunday may trust Erdogan with such powers - saying that it is necessary to stabilise the country and secure it from political and economic turmoil leading to insecurity - would they be equally as comfortable with a CHP president at the helm?

"We are going to sit down and determine a roadmap as two strategic partners, the United States and Turkey, as allies, as important countries in North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, we believe that we can resolve significant problems", he added.

On Tuesday, Yildirim said Erdogan would be invited to join the party as soon as the official results are declared.

"The people's will has been reflected at the ballot box, and the debate is over", he said. Everyone and all sections - and the main opposition party in particular - must show respect. Experts say voters in these areas were responding to the slowdown in the economy and the drastic decrease in tourist numbers due to Turkey's foreign policy choices vis-a-vis Russian Federation and Syria.

He said such caution was needed not only because of the observers' report but also because of the closeness of the result and what he called the "far-reaching" implications of the constitutional amendments.

But it said that had failed to happen, and that evidence of irregularities had therefore not been properly archived.

The opposition has cited several problems with how the vote was conducted. The president will also be able to dissolve parliament, although this will trigger simultaneous presidential and general elections. It canceled the results of local elections in two districts in southeastern Turkey in April 2014 and re-held them two months later.

The stamps were required to avoid "ballot-stuffing" - where extra votes are cast illegally to manipulate results - and unstamped ballots had been dismissed as invalid in earlier votes.
