Turkey's Erdogan says he's set to meet Trump in Washington


Turkey's ruling party and the main opposition party kept up their fight Saturday over the results of the referendum on expanding the president's powers.

Any challenge by the European Court of Human Rights against the results of the Turkish referendum would be rejected by Ankara's constitutional court, a senior official has said.

The CHP fired back, saying he was threatening the judiciary in order to get them to rule against the party's case.

The "Yes" camp won 51.41 percent in last Sunday's referendum in a tighter-than-expected win, but opponents claim the result would have been reversed in a fair poll.

The U.S. then wanted an additional batch of files and evidence from Turkey, which Justice Minister Bekir Bozdag presented to then-U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch during a meeting last October. Bozdag said these judicial organs would reject such applications based on Turkish laws.

"No court can undo/change the decisions of the nation", he tweeted.

But there was anger and shock after the Supreme Election Board (YSK) made a last-minute decision to accept ballot documents in envelopes without an official stamp, which the opposition argues opened the way for fraud.

Turkey's main opposition party has filed a formal request seeking the referendum to be annulled because of the voting irregularities.

The placard centre reads in Turkish: "NO, we will win" and the one right, reads: "NO, it is not over, it has just started". Opposition parties criticized the electoral board's decision to allow unstamped ballots to be counted. The electoral board, however, published past rulings on the validity of unstamped ballots.

He said the report lacked fairness and objectivity.
