Report: Final results show 51.4 pct supported expanding Erdogan powers

ANKARA - Final results from Turkey's referendum on expanding President Tayyip Erdogan's powers showed 51.4 percent support for the "Yes" vote to approve the constitutional changes, the High Electoral Board said on Thursday.
The results, which matched the preliminary figures released in the hours after polling closed on April 16, were released despite calls by the opposition to delay a final announcement while they appealed what they said were major flaws in the vote.
Erdogan told Reuters this week that he would rejoin Turkey's ruling AK Party once the full results came out.
