    Turkish PM declares victory as 58 percent approve charter reform

    ISTANBUL - Daily News with wires

    Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan declared victory Sunday night as 58 percent of voters approved a constitutional reform package in a highly debated referendum.

    The result marks the end of a contentious campaign that pitted the ruling Justice and Development Party, or AKP, which proposed the reforms, against the main opposition Republican People's Party, or CHP.

    Erdoğan hailed the step as a victory for democracy after 99 percent of the votes had been counted.

    "Both those who said 'yes' and those who said 'no' won today because advanced democracy is for everyone," Erdoğan said at the AKP's Istanbul headquarters Sunday night. "Every citizen has made great gains tonight."

    The referendum on 26 amendments to a constitution that was crafted after a 1980 military coup had become a battleground between the government and traditional power elites that believe Turkey's secular principles are under threat.

    The vote sets the stage for elections next year in a country whose regional clout has surged in recent years, The Associated Press reported.

    The civilian government says the amendments fall in line with European Union requirements for membership, partly by making the military more accountable to civilian courts and allowing civil servants to go on strike.

    The opposition, however, believes a provision that would give Parliament more say in appointing judges masks an attempt to control the courts, which have sparred with Erdoğan's camp.

    Vote count in provinces

    In Ankara, the nation's capital, 54 percent of the constituency voted in favor of the constitutional reform. The participation in Ankara was 80 percent with 2.6 million valid votes.

    In Istanbul, the most populous city of Turkey, 55 percent of the voters said "yes" in the referendum. The participation in Istanbul was 73 percent with 6.6 million voters taking part in the referendum out of a total of 9.2 million registered voters city-wide.

    In İzmir, a stronghold of the main opposition CHP, 63 percent of the voters said "no" to the proposed constitutional reform. The participation in İzmir was 78 percent with 2.2 million valid votes.

    In Diyarbakır, a province that vote heavily for the pro-Kurdish Peace and Democracy Party, or BDP, 93 percent of the voters said "yes" to the government's reform package. However, with only 33 percent of eligible electors, or 267,000 of 850,000 people, casting ballots in the poll, a boycott call from the pro-Kurdish Peace and Democracy Party, or BDP, appeared to be was the most significant aspect of the province's results.

    In Tunceli, the hometown of CHP leader Kemal Kılı├ždaroğlu, 80 percent of voters said "no" to the constitutional package. The participation in Tunceli was 67 percent with 37,000 valid votes.
