Forecast: Turksih referendum to cause destabilization  in country

ArmInfo. The Constitution referendum in Turkey will cause destabilization in that country, Alexander Iskandaryan, the Director of Institute for  Caucasus stated  on April 16 at a press conference in  Yerevan. 

According to Iskandaryan, this referendum was just another step to  turn Tukey into sultanate. In this respect the expert does not rule  out the persecution of the liberal part of Turkish  society, which  mainly stood against the referendum and expansion of President's  responsibilities. "Of course, no one will be  hanged, but there will  be certain punishing measures that will lead to destabilization,  which may last until next elections," the political expert stated. 

Iskandaryan thinks  also that the discussion on  joining EU held in  Turkey is artificial. " there are no negotiations and there is no  prospective of Turkey's joining EU," he mentioned. At that, the  expert mentioned that in difference to EU, this country has an  essential importance for NATO, because, from geopolitical point,  it  is situated in a key region . "Hence, all the whispers about Turkey's  excluding from NATO after  this referendum are none," the expert  mentioned. 

According to preliminary data, on April 16 for a little bit more that  51% of  Turkish nationals voted for Constitution modifications in  respect to transition from parliamentary to the presidential model of  country administration. The population of the most developed cities  of Turkey, such Istanbul, Izmir and Ankara voted against any  modifications to the Constitution. Erdogan won  thanks to his  traditional electorate in other vilayets of the country. According to  appropriate modifications to the Constitution, the President of  Turkey will remain at  his post until the year of 2029.
