    The ruling AK Party, which backed the "Yes" vote, had hoped for a wider margin of victory in Sunday’s Turkish referendum.

    But in several major cities - places that had previously supported President Recep Tayyip Erdogan - the "No" campaign came out on top.

    Fifty-one percent of the voters in Istanbul, normally supportive of their former mayor Erdogan, said no to changing the constitution.
