Last quote about Turkish constitutional referendum 2017

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

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

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

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

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

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

Mehmet Ali Kulat

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