Young Turkish voters will decide on President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s future. If he is re-elected, the political system will change.
Turkey's new presidential system will officially enter into force on Monday. That will give President Recep Tayyip Erdogan powers that no democratically elected leader of Turkey has ever had.
Recep Tayyip Erdogan is set to hold greater powers than any other Turkish leader has seen in decades. Former German Chancellor Gerhard Schröder was among the dozens of world leaders attending the lavish ceremony.
A generation has grown up with Erdogan in power as prime minister or president. These young voters and their disparate views will determine their country's election and its future. Julia Hahn reports from Istanbul.
President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's spokesman has said Turkey could end its state of emergency ahead of an extension deadline of July 19. But it would not slow down Turkey's fight against terror, he added.
