Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım said theresult of the upcoming referendum on constitutional reforms would be importantfor the future of Turkey on Feb. 11.
"We will say 'Yes' on behalf of the nation. We will say 'Yes' for thenation. We will say 'Yes' to which the nation says 'Yes'. "We are counting the days until we can implement the system of government that is becoming to our nation," he told a meeting with his party'smayors in southern Antalya province.
The premier said that they would crown the republic with a fulldemocracy after the referendum. "The result of the [constitutional] referendum isvery important for the future of Turkey."
He also accused the main opposition Republican People’s Party's (CHP)leader Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu -- who will vote No in the April 16 referendum – ofusing terrorist organizations' rhetoric when talking about the constitutionalreferendum.
"The main opposition leader almost speaks the language of FETOmembers, PKK members, and Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP) members," Yıldırımsaid. "[This is] unworthy. The main opposition is the alternative of thegovernment. Using the method of terrorist organizations would only damage the main opposition party."
