Below you will find an invitation for international observers for the upcoming referendum in Turkey 16th of April.
The referendum for the Constitutional amendments to build a “presidential system” in Turkey is scheduled for 16 April 2017. This referendum is of utmost importance for the future of democratic institutions in Turkey. As Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP) we would like to invite you to observe the referendum process in order to ensure its transparency and fairness.
The result of the referendum will re-shape the political system in Turkey. If the Erdoğan-AKP government wins in the referendum, then the President will monopolize all legislative, executive and judicial powers and establish a totalitarian regime. This system does not involve any effective check & balance mechanisms. There will be no separation of powers, no rule of law, and no independent judiciary in the country.
