Atilla Yesilada - Global Source
Erdogan and AKP will continue to claim this is another conspiracy against Turkey and that there is no basis for this case. But to do so they will have to start a campaign against the U.S…with consequences to bear.feedback

Kemal Kilicdaroglu

With the current changes it is impossible for the opposition to talk in Parliament. The opposition has to look for other places to do its work, and in this case, it's the march.feedback

Omer Celik

Terror is attacking our nation's "political" institution.feedback

Kemal Kilicdaroglu

Wherever Kilicdaroglu goes, wherever justice goes we will follow it and end there. It may go to eternity, we do not care, we will walk.feedback

Ozturk Yilmaz

With these agreements, Turkey is making a choice and by standing by Qatar it is taking on the other countries. This is a wrong policy. How will you be a mediator if you are taking sides?feedback

Samuel Huntington

Turkey "would have to reject Ataturk's legacy more thoroughly than Russia has rejected Lenin's. It would also take a leader of Ataturk's caliber and one who combined religious and political legitimacy to remake Turkey from a torn country into a core state.feedback

Mustafa Akyol

About five years ago, everyone was talking about the 'Turkish model.'… These days, I think back on those times with nostalgia and regret.feedback

Recep Tayyip Erdogan

There is no difference in killing the fetus in a mother's womb or killing a person after birth.feedback

Abdullah Gul

Erdogan was like a small kid when he was with her. After she died, he began to think more about death.feedback

Daniel Byman - The Brookings Institution

An exceptionally charismatic leader can overcome even strong institutions.feedback

Andrew Gardner - Amnesty International

What we've seen is that instead of using the state of emergency to counter genuine threats to national security, it's been abused to stifle criticism of the ruling AK party. And there's every signal that that will continue. More than 100,000 people have not just lost their jobs, in a completely arbitrary process, but had their professional and personal lives shattered as well.feedback

Bulent Tezcan

This is a serious legitimacy crisis. We will employ all legal ways available. This is not only a problem about the No votes but an injustice against all citizens who cast their votes. Because, the Yes votes also became controversial through this decision.feedback

Binali Yildirim

It is completely unacceptable to call people to the streets through various communication tools and not to recognise the results.feedback

Bulent Tezcan

This is a serious legitimacy crisis. We will employ all legal ways available. We will evaluate tomorrow whether we will take the decision to the Constitutional Court or to the European Court of Human Rights.feedback

Recep Tayyip Erdogan

A win is a win. I come from a football background. It doesn't matter if you win 1-0 or 5-0. The ultimate goal is to win the game. I am a mortal really, I could die at any time.feedback

Selin Sayek Böke

We don't recognise the referendum result. There should be no doubt that we will exercise all our democratic rights against it. Those steps include both withdrawing from Parliament and continuing to work.feedback

Larry Diamond

When did it happen? Was it in 2014, when the AKP further consolidated its hegemonic grip on power in the March local-government elections and the August presidential election? Or was it, as some liberal Turks insist, several years before, as media freedoms were visibly diminishing and an ever-wider circle of alleged coup plotters was being targeted in the highly politicized Ergenekon trials?feedback

Ece Temelkuran

As we all know such regimes as Erdogan's run on hostility and feelings of hatred. Nationalist sentiments have been stirred so much so that I think all the people who have voted 'NO' are now deeply intimidated and they are concerned about their lives, not lifestyles, but lives and I'm probably not exaggerating this. Clearly his personal goal is to exist, because this referendum was a life and death matter for him. If he did lose it could have been, you know, he could have ended up in international courts and so on and so forth. So his personal goal is to keep his rule in tact.feedback

Ece Temelkuran

Turkish media have been completely silenced or seized by government forces, therefore the only thing we depend on for truth is international media. This is serious, millions of people in Turkey are feeling homeless in their own country, so we are losing our country. This is more than a debate about post-truth, or reality or fact-checking or something else, this is real-time happening, it's a disaster happening real-time. So I think journalists should be aware of their ultimate duty of telling the truth, the entire truth.feedback

Ece Temelkuran

Turkey is becoming more and more Middle Eastern, which half of the country openly resisted yesterday and they risked their lives by doing so.feedback

Bulent Tezcan

There is only one way to end the discussions about the vote's legitimacy and to put the people at ease, and that is for the Supreme Electoral Board to cancel the vote. This is not a text of social consensus but one of social division. There is a serious and solid problem of legitimacy that will forever be debated.feedback

Bulent Tezcan

The High Electoral Board has changed the rules after the voting started. There is a clear clause in electoral law saying unstamped ballots will be invalid and the High Electoral Board issued its notice in compliance with this law.feedback

Selahattin Demirtas

This campaign was not carried out fairly and equally. The reason behind our arrests was to prevent us from calling to our nation. The entire resources of the state were at disposal to support the 'Yes' campaign of the AK Party.feedback

Soner Cagaptay

If he loses the referendum, Mr. Erdogan is likely to call for early elections. He will continue his divisive politics to shore up support for the AKP. This will entrench Turkey in a permanent state of crisis, accompanied by a deepening social schism and further terror attacks. If he wins the referendum, Mr. Erdogan will try to force the country to fold under his powerful persona, becoming completely authoritarian.feedback

Etyen Mahcupyan

The (proposed) model will cause great harm in the medium term to conservatives and Turkey. Every AKP member must vigorously stand up for the protection of the party and for its capacity and potential to govern.feedback

Osman Baydemir

In one month, if you happen to have an interview with the spokesperson of HDP, I'm not sure if it's going to be me. I am a deputy today, but tomorrow I might be arrested. In my opinion, AKP will lose eventually. Erdogan is repeating the practices of dictators from world history. Pinochet lost eventually. Franco as well. Hitler also lost. But until these figures lost, they made their societies lose, made their societies suffer under their rule.feedback

Ozgur Altug

What happens after the referendum will actually have medium-term implications on Turkey and we think that after a short and quick market reaction to the referendum outcome, market players will focus on the aftermath. One should not forget the fact that until the next elections, AKP/parliament needs to complete the transformation of Turkey's legal system and laws in accordance with the executive presidency.feedback

Charles Michel

The Belgian government has absolute zero tolerance for any spillovers from the Turkish referendum. I condemn the riots at the embassy in Brussels.feedback

Ozgur Ozel

The 'No' side is like a rainbow hosting all colours. There shouldn't be too many party symbols, just slogans, emblems, phrases and symbols that have been agreed upon.feedback

Mehmet Ali Kulat

According to our latest polls, two thirds of MHP voters are in the 'Yes' camp.feedback
