#AceNewsReport – Jan.24: Turkish MP’s approve two more articles in the constitutional change
Turkey’s parliament on Thursday adopted the sixth and seventh articles of a new constitutional reform package ahead of a referendum likely to be held in April.
The second round of voting began Wednesday after almost three weeks of debates in parliament.
A first round of ballots on the reforms was completed as lawmakers passed 18 articles — each with more than 340 approval votes.
The new constitution that President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is working to pass in Turkey would effectively turn the country into a “sultanate,” spelling the end of democracy, the head of the Union of Turkish Bar Associations warned.
“In our books, we have a specialist term for this: This is called a sultanate,” Metin Feyzioglu told journalists in the Turkish capital Ankara.
