CNN Exclusive: Erdogan insists Turkey reforms don't make him a dictator

The pugnacious Erdogan, who was congratulated on his victory by US President Donald Trump on April 18, made stronger comments in the face of complaints about the fairness of the referendum, telling global election monitors: "Know your place".

The voters also turned Turkey's parliamentary system into a presidential one.

According to a statement by his spokesperson, Mr. Buhari said he "believes the referendum showcases the democratic credentials of the country and reflects a willingness of the Turkish people to live together and jointly pursue a better future".

Binali Yildirim said Wednesday the electoral board would rule on the main opposition Republican People's Party's request for the referendum's annulment.

President Trump reiterated USA support to Turkey as a strategic partner and North Atlantic Treaty Organisation ally, and welcomed Turkey's contributions to the counter-ISIS campaign.

Trump's congratulations on Monday were in contrast with European Union leaders who have been reserved in their reaction to the narrow victory and even his own State Department, which earlier noted concerns expressed by global observers over the "uneven playing field".

Protests were also planned for other areas of Istanbul and in other Turkish cities. He said that he will work quickly with Parliament to re-introduce the death penalty, and if that fails, another referendum may be called.

A hero for many in Turkey's pious working class, Erdogan has over the years also won support from liberal businessmen.

The U.S. State Department has echoed similar concerns. But who wants to do business with a caliphate?

Anadolu said Putin and Erdogan emphasised the importance of normalising ties, which are still recovering after Turkish jets shot down a Russian war plane over the Syrian border in 2015. "But I now have a safety net for my business in case things between Turkey and Europe gets much worse".

The Kremlin said that Putin phoned Erdogan and congratulated him on the "successful conduct" the referendum.

"Now Erdogan will have to rule the part of Turkey most open to the world, with the highest cultural production, export capacity, tourism revenue and industrial output, with a constitution approved by its most introvert part", he wrote.
