Turkey will hold elections if a constitutional reform package expanding President Tayyip Erodgan’s powers is not approved by parliament, state-run Anadolu agency reported a ruling AK Party lawmaker as saying on Thursday.

“If the proposal doesn’t pass in the general assembly, even if nobody wants it, Turkey will have to hold elections,” said Mustafa Sentop, an AKP lawmaker and head of parliament’s constitutional commission.

Turkey’s parliament this week began debating a package of constitutional reforms that would introduce the executive presidency long sought by Erdogan and his supporters. (Reuters)
