Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan appears to have scored a major political victory after successfully pushing to expand the powers of Turkey’s presidency. The referendum alters Turkey’s constitution to transfer numerous powers from their parliament to the president. Opposition leaders and outside observers have voiced worry over the future of Turkey and maintain that Erdogan’s campaign ahead of the referendum was conducted undemocratically. Ilhan Tanir, managing editor of Washington Hatti, joins RT America’s Anya Parampil to offer his analysis of the referendum and troubling developments in Turkey’s fragile democracy.
