Turkey rivals make last push before tense poll

Turkey rivals make last push before tense pollTurkey’s top politicians made a final effort on Saturday to sway undecided voters in a frenetic end to campaigning a day ahead of the closely-contested referendum on expanding President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s powers. If passed, the new presidential system will implement the most radical political shake-up in Turkey’s recent history, dispensing with the office of the prime minister and centralising the entire executive bureaucracy under the presidency. “Turkey will tomorrow make one of the most important decisions in its history,” said Erdogan as he wrapped up an exhausting nationwide campaign with a rally in the Istanbul district of Sariyer.
