ISTANBUL (Reuters) - Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said on Wednesday that appeals against the outcome of Sunday's referendum handing President Tayyip Erdogan sweeping powers were a right, but that calling people to the streets in protest were not.
Speaking to reporters in Ankara, Yildirim said the ruling AK Party had received a message from the nation in the vote, which the "yes" camp won by a narrower majority than it expected, which was that it needed to be more careful on some issues.
