Watching results via.. Yenisafak, they have an interactive map
Also jamesinturkey is providing some live coverage. We met james in yesterday's post Turkey's Referendum: "To Close To Call" ???
I've been following the results of the referendum all morning..
going between jamesinturkey and Yenisafak
Diyarbakir results have been flipped from early polling maps- Contradicting both the polling and the DW report from a week or so ago.
Then there is a report "speculation" from CNN Turk aka CIA/ Gulen media that
6.57pm Block results service? by MikeOn CNN Turk, journalist Murat Yetkin says there is speculation that the Supreme Election Commission (YSK) has blocked its results service to some political parties.
This is going to run through the five eyes media like a bad case of the stomache flu, if you know what I mean? It's looking very much to me as if interested outside parties are creating perceptions and have probably managed to skew the results of this referendum to make the Yes vote appear weaker then it has actually been polling at for months. In other words to guarantee the results the 5 eyes media had already projected.
Presenting the Turkish populace as nearly equally divided. Enabling greater demonization of the Turkish leadership- if that's even possible- Erdogan's been a 'dictator" and the Sultan and a tyrant and a whatever other label that could be applied for years now- And he managed all that from his largely ceremonial Presidential position- Quite amazing, if not entirely unrealistic
There was a shooting at a Diyarkabir polling station which could have served as a distraction-
Results look to be a 51 yes /49 no- A strangely familiar result...
-Destabilization of Turkey to worsen-The PKK shall return to attacking with a vengeance
- "Peaceful Protests" shall commence.. centered around Izmir province (coastal and US base)
South Eastern provinces & "European Turkey" Istanbul
-Terror attacks in Ankara
- The Yes camp has declared victory in Turkey's executive presidency referendum, based on results provided by Anadolu Agency
- But the No camp has not conceded and has vowed to contest the results.
Erdoğan: "We call on all other countries to respect the decision of the Turkish people."It would be absurd to believe that this referendum was undertaken on anything but favourable for the yes vote poll results
We expect our allies to do more to support our fight against separatism and terrorism, he adds.
I'm suggesting that the pre-referendum polling had been consistent with the 60/40 internal polling results I had previously reported- which would have been plus or minus maybe 3 to 5 percentage points- but could not have been today's result.
Yes, I am suggesting external forces interfered in the referendum.
