Turkey's referendum explained

Al Jazeera's Anita McNaught explains the most important and controversial amendments proposed by the government.

    Turkey has voted in a tightly contested referendum to change the constitution.

    Tayyip Erdogan, the Turkish prime minister, said that the reforms will bring the charter more in line with European Union standards, boosting Turkey's membership bid into the bloc.

    But opponents said it gives the government too much power over the judiciary.
