ANKARA, Apr. 16 (MNA) – Turkish opposition CHP party says authorities are manipulating referendum votes counting.

One of the main Turkish opposition parties, the Republican People's Party (CHP), said that the authorities are manipulating while counting the votes in the Sunday's referendum on constitutional amendments, Erdal Aksunger, the party's deputy chairman, said.

"There is manipulation of the results. According to our observers, opponents to the presidential system are winning. We receive such results from numerous provinces. Lets protect our choice," Aksunger told the NTV channel.

According to preliminary results after 90 percent of the votes processed, 52.5 percent of voters supported the constitutional amendments, expanding powers of the country's president.
