BRUSSELS - The European Commission called on Turkey on Tuesday to investigate "alleged irregularities" in Sunday's referendum boosting the powers of President Tayyip Erdogan.

"We call on the Turkish authorities to consider the next steps very carefully and to seek the broadest possible national consensus in the follow-up to the referendum," Commission spokesman Margaritis Schinas told a regular briefing.

"We also call on the authorities to launch a transparent investigation into these alleged irregularities," he said, citing international observer reports and a last-minute decision to allow unstamped ballots in the referendum.
