Erdogan New Caesar

>The state-run Anadolu news agency claimed that – with more than 99 per cent of the votes counted – 51 per cent per cent of voters sided with the "Yes" campaign, which would usher in the most radical change to the country's political system in its modern history.

>The vote would replace Turkey's parliamentary democracy with an executive presidency and could see Mr Erdogan stay in power until at least 2029 - as he gain the chance to run for re-election in 2019 and potentially serve two five-year terms. The vote would allow him to re-take control of the ruling Justice and Development party (AKP) that he helped to found. Mr Erdogan spent 11 years as Turkey's Prime Minister - and head of the AKP - before becoming the country's first directly-elected president in August 2014 - a supposedly ceremonial role.

>But the main opposition the Republican People's Party (CHP) said they will demand a recount of up to 40 per cent of the vote, saying that "illegal acts" occurred during the vote and that there were up to 2.5m "problematic ballots". The pro-Kurdish People's Democratic Party (HDP) also claimed they had information that voter fraud was implicated in between three to four per cent of the ballots. Both parties said they would appeal the results.

>The Supreme Election Commission took the unprecedented move to say it would count ballots that had not been stamped by its officials as valid unless they could be proved fraudulent, citing a high number of complaints that its officials at polling stations had failed to stamp them.

this is good news for europe.
the EU can't shill for turkey becoming a member anymore.
if they have a referendum on the death penalty then there's no way the psychos in bruxelles will allow turkey to become a member.
europe dodged an 80 million brown bullet coming its way. can you imagine turkey as an EU member?
The EU would have the following neighbors: iran, syria, iraq, lebanon. add some tens of millions to those 80 million turks moving to europe.

Except that it was always the JewSA shilling for Turkey to become an EU member.

Trump congratulates Erdogan on Controversial Turkey Referendum

President Donald Trump congratulated Turkish leader Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Monday on the country’s recent referendum granting Erdogan sweeping new powers, according to a White House readout of the call.

The call came after the State Department took a different, tougher tack that appeared to show qualms about the legitimacy of the vote. Trump’s call also seemed to contradict a White House spokesman who earlier in the day said the administration wanted to wait and see what election monitors learned about the vote.

The differing statements underscored the continuing difficulty facing the Trump administration in managing its foreign policy messaging. It also underscored the tricky nature of U.S. relations with Turkey, a critical NATO ally whose leader has shown autocratic tendencies.

"President Donald J. Trump spoke today with President Recep Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey to congratulate him on his recent referendum victory and to discuss the United States’ action in response to the Syrian regime’s use of chemical weapons on April 4th," the White House said in a readout statement Monday, adding that the president had thanked Erdogan for his support of Trump's recent military action in Syria.

The White House said Trump and Erdogan also discussed counter-terrorism tactics and "the need to cooperate against all groups that use terrorism to achieve their ends" of defeating the Islamic State. The Turkish government confirmed the conversation in a statement Monday.

Erdogan's historic constitutional referendum claimed victory Sunday by a margin of 51.4 to 48.6 percent. It serves to drastically consolidate power in the executive branch, eliminating the existing parliamentary system for a presidential model that would have him serve as both head of state and of the government.

Erdogan's expansion of powers has faced criticism both within Turkey and internationally, with opposition leaders and global watchdogs alike alleging voting irregularities in the process.

The White House's congratulatory tone made no mention of alleged voting irregularities in the Turkish referendum — a distinct contrast with the State Department. Acting State Department spokesperson Mark Toner pointed to a report by the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe detailing an "unlevel playing" in the Turkish campaign as cause potential issue in assessing the referendum.

"Democracies gain strength through respect for diverse points of view, especially on difficult issues," Toner said. "We thank the OSCE Referendum Observation Mission for its important work and note the concerns detailed in its preliminary assessment of the conduct of the vote and campaign. Those concerns include observed irregularities on voting day and an uneven playing field during the difficult campaign period, which took place under a state of emergency.

Toner added that the U.S. government was looking “to the government of Turkey to protect the fundamental rights and freedoms of all its citizens — regardless of their vote on April 16 — as guaranteed by the Turkish constitution and in accordance with Turkey’s international commitments, such as under the Helsinki Charter.”

Earlier in the day White House press secretary Sean Spicer said the White House wanted to see what international election monitors had to say about the vote.

“I think we’d rather not get ahead of that report and start to make decisions without knowing. There were observers there, as they routinely are, and I’d rather wait and see,” Spicer said.

It was not entirely clear why, despite Spicer's statement, the White House later released word of Trump congratulating Erdogan.

Trump’s tone also contrasted with other world leaders, including German Chancellor Angela Merkel who was cooler, by comparison, in a joint statement with Germany’s foreign minister.

They noted the “tight referendum results show how deeply divided Turkish society is” and called on Erdogan to take responsibility for all citizens.

Turkish Civil War when?

Seriously, half the fucking country hates him, and that's when we consider the official poll statistics and assuming that they haven't been tampered with. Pulling shit like this is unlikely to make him more popular among that demographic.

>Turkish Civil War when?
when kurdistan is formed in iraq and syria.
they'll send weapons and people to train and equip the kurds in the south east who are already fighting a guerrilla war in the south east of the country.
if turkey leaves nato then russia will seize the opportunity and snatch the bosphorus strait.
the only thing that makes turkey relevant is that strait because it controls what gets into the black sea. it can deprive the russians of imported goods.

Eh, I doubt Kurds will be able to achieve much. They are basically nigger-tier and won't accomplish shit on their own. I'm talking about the Eastern, uneducated moron Turks versus the more educated Western Turks, which is a conflict that's been building for a while.
