The referendum on constitutional amendments in Turkey on Sunday was not in compliance with the standards of the Council of Europe, worldwide observers from OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR) said in a statement. Support for "Yes" dominated campaign coverage, and the arrests of journalists and closure of media outlets silenced other views, the monitors said.

The board's unprecedented decision to accept as valid ballots that didn't bear the official stamp has led to outrage among opposition parties.

The margin fell short of the sweeping victory Erdogan had sought in the referendum. Despite a state of emergency and a widespread crackdown on dissent, he succeeded in persuading only 51.4% of voters to back his constitutional upheaval.

Addressing crowds of flag-waving supporters from the steps of the presidential palace in Ankara, Erdogan said Sunday's vote had ended all debate on changing the constitution and creating an executive presidency.

Critics of the proposals say they give overly broad powers to the president, Han said.

He said questions remained for investors over Erdogan's behaviour and whether the result pushes Erdogan towards more conciliatory policy positions, or whether it "accelerates the slide towards autocracy". "This implies a big responsibility for the Turkish government and President Erdogan personally".

That said, it would be easier said than done to outclass Daredevils who seemed to have found new heroes in the face of adversity. Rishabh Pant would get the Delhi innings back on track, though, with a superb cameo which saw him score 38 from just 16 balls.

A failed coup past year allowed him to turn up the heat on opposition voices in the run-up to Sunday's referendum. The narrowness of the result, coupled with allegations of irregularities, sets the scene for further instability. Those two nations barred Turkish ministers from holding referendum campaign rallies within their borders, where millions of Turkish voters live. "We continue to make new challenges", he said.

Since a failed military coup in July past year, Erdogan has had the country's state of emergency status extended several times, which has already given him a taste of expanded powers.

State media was biased in favor of Erdogan and did not adequately cover opposition. "The campaign rhetoric was tarnished by some senior officials equating "No" supporters with terrorist sympathizers, and in numerous cases "No" supporters faced police interventions and violent scuffles at their events".

"Late changes in counting procedures removed an important safeguard", said Preda, who headed the PACE delegation, referring to the election authorities' decision to permit ballot papers without an official stamp.

The opposition is contesting the result and Erdoğan's first speech shows he is concerned that the worldwide community may not accept the results as legitimate.

Erkan Gural, chairman of the Young Businessmen Confederation of Turkey, said Turkey had voted for strong economic stability. Yes to a single flag... "Both the unfair campaign and the substantive reforms that will now be implemented take Turkey away from the prospect of a political alliance with the European Union".

Sin embargo, miles de partidarios que ondeaban banderas salieron a las calles de Ankara y Estambul para celebrar. La victoria le traerá, además, al mandatario otro beneficio: podrá volver a liderar su partido.

Ibrahim Caglar, head of the Istanbul Chamber of Commerce, said there is now an opportunity to start work on pending reforms. He has largely absorbed the power of the legislature and has been ruling under "emergency powers" ever since last summer's attempted coup.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said Turkish leaders should open talks with opponents after a narrow referendum win highlighted divisions within their country.

The referendum approves 18 constitutional amendments that will replace Turkey's parliamentary system of governance with a presidential one.

Gabriel said that, though many European Union member countries may be "rigorous (in their stand on Turkey) due to their domestic policies", Brussels should intensively work to find the channels of dialogue on "how to impact so that Turkey remains a democratic country".

Reactions to the result on Monday were muted from Turkey's European partners and the ruling party.

German integration commissioner Aydan Ozoguz warned against criticizing Turks living in Germany across the board over how they voted, telling regional newspaper Saarbruecker Zeitung that only around 14 percent of all German Turks living in Germany had voted "Yes" and added that most migrants had not voted. "It is very clear".
