Turkey held a referendum on whether to approve constitutional amendments that would substantially increase the power of the country’s President on the 16 April 2017. Soli Özel and Sezin Öney write that the result was bound to transform the country in one way or another, and that a Yes vote would effectively consign Turkey’s century old parliamentary system to history.
