Baku, April 16, AZERTAC

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has cast his vote in the country’s referendum on key constitutional reforms, saying he believes in the people’s sense of democracy, Anadolu Agency reports.

Erdogan voted alongside his wife Emine Erdogan and close family members, including his grandchildren.

“This April 16 referendum is not an ordinary voting [process],” he said after casting his ballot, adding that he would follow the outcome from Istanbul.

“We have had many parliamentary elections in our history as a republic. In the meantime, we have also had referendums.

“However, this referendum is a decision of a new administrative system, a change and a transformation in the Republic of Turkey. I hope our people will make a decision to pave the way for a quick development.... We need to grow quicker and walk faster.”

He also said he believed in the people’s sense of democracy.
