It was a close call, with a little over 50 percent of Turkey's voters deciding in favour of 18 constitutional amendments that will increase the powers of the president.
Turkey's electorate has narrowly voted to alter its constitution. Almost 48 million people voted. The win means that the country's constitution will be amended to replace the parliamentary system of governance, moving it to an executive presidency. As it became apparent that the vote for the 18 proposed constitutional amendments would win, many took to the streets to celebrate, while for others there was disappointment.
