Turkey election board 'rejects referendum annulment bid'

"We will activate all legal channels", he said, adding that the party would map out its policy after meeting legal experts on Thursday. "We will evaluate tomorrow whether we will take the decision to the Constitutional Court or to the European Court of Human Rights", CHP deputy chairman Bulent Tezcan told reporters in comments broadcast live on television.

Prime Minister and AKP leader Binali Yildirim said Erdogan can rejoin the party he founded in 2001 once official results of the plebiscite, granting him sweeping powers, are announced.

However, the main opposition Republican People's Party (CHP) challenged the result.

More than 64 percent of Mersin's electorate voted "No" in the referendum, a surprise outcome in a city which had voted largely for the ruling AK Party, which was founded by Erdogan, in a November 2015 general election.

Turkey's state-run news agency says 19 people were detained in Istanbul for allegedly using the results of a constitutional referendum as an "excuse" to organize "unauthorized demonstrations".

In particular, Erdogan will have the power to appoint and fire ministers, name half the members of Turkey's highest judicial body, hold the leadership of a political party while in office, and lead the country for the next 12 years, if he wins future elections.

Turkey's Supreme Electoral Board (YSK) made a controversial last-minute decision on April 16 to count ballots that had not been stamped by officials.

The White House in a statement later on Monday said that the two leaders discussed a range of topics in addition to the vote in Turkey.

"Efforts to cast a shadow on the result of the vote by spreading rumors of fraud are futile and in vain", Yildirim said.

"The rule of a match can not be changed while the match is still being played, this is a universal rule", he said. "The will of the people was freely reflected into the ballot boxes, and this business is over". ". If your ballots are unsafe, that means that regime is not a democracy".

The opposition has complained about an unlevel playing field before the referendum and irregularities during the vote, claims echoed by election monitors from the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) and by the European Union.

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan will meet U.S. President Donald Trump in May ahead of a meeting of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation alliance, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said on Wednesday.

"The OSCE's report has no reliability as their observations lack objectivity and are extremely partial", Cavusoglu told a news conference in Ankara.
