Turkey’s parliament backed a controversial constitutional reform package, paving the way for a referendum on the extension of presidential powers.
The bill would see changes in the system of government which would allow the president to keep ties with his party and restructure the country’s highest judicial body.

Citizens could be called to the ballot box to decide on the bill by April.
