Istanbul : Turkey’s prime minister says opposition parties have the right to file objections to the outcome of a recent referendum on expanding presidential powers, but warned that calling for street protests was unacceptable.

Binali Yildirim said on Wednesday the electoral board would rule on the main opposition Republican People’s Party’s request for the referendum’s annulment.

Opposition parties have complained of a series of irregularities, particularly an electoral board decision to accept ballots without official stamps, as required by Turkish law. PTI
