The Turkish parliament's constitutional commission approved a draft constitutional reform law on Friday, state-run Anadolu Agency reported, paving the way for the general assembly to debate a bill expanding the president's powers.

After a parliamentary vote, Turkey is set to hold a referendum on the changes by spring, a move that would help Tayyip Erdogan acquire the executive presidency he has long sought.
