EU urges investigations on referendum fraud claimsWorld | 18 Apr 2017 8:00 pm
The European Union is calling on the Turkish authorities to launch "transparent investigations'' into "alleged irregularities'' during last weekend's referendum on increased powers for the country's presidency.
International election observers and opposition parties have reported numerous voting irregularities during the vote which President Recep Tayyip Erdogan won by a narrow margin.
EU Commission spokesman Margaritis Schinas said the EU was encouraging "Turkey to move closer to the European Union again, and not to move even further and faster away from us.'' -AP
