Erdogan says could hold referendum on death penalty

AFP  |  Istanbul 

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan today said he could hold a referendum on reinstating the death penalty, after claiming victory in the vote on a new constitution that gives him greater powers.

"If it (a bill) comes in front of me, I will approve it. But if there isn't support (from the opposition in parliament)... Then what shall we do? Then we could have another referendum for that," Erdogan said in a televised speech in Istanbu, referring to capital punishment, as supporters chanted for its reintroduction.
