    Turkey's Republican People's Party demands complete cancellation of the referendum results due to "violations".

    ANKARA (Sputnik) — Turkey's main opposition Republican People's Party demanded that the country's Supreme Electoral Council (SEC) cancel the results of the constitutional referendum, a party spokesman told Sputnik on Tuesday.

    "The appeal was filed with the SEC at 14:30 Moscow time today. We demand complete cancellation of the results of the referendum because of violations during its holding," the spokesman said.

    On Sunday, Turkey held a referendum on the transition from a parliamentary to presidential system of governance. Preliminary results of the vote indicate a victory for supporters of the governance shift.
