recent elections and he argued that in order for turkey to transform and become one of the viciously ones to see as one of the ten most powerful nations on earth he needed a more centralized government is one that does away with some of the bureaucracy as he described it in times of the different hurdles that you would find in legislative bodies through the parliament and so forth and that's why they went for this it's important to not only see that this presidential system john was trolls in by the people albeit in an hour of victory but one that was through that referendum that took place a few months ago which scored roughly fifty one point two or three percent in favor of that presidential system now with these new powers obviously there comes those responsibilities as many would say the responsibility to prove that he is not there on some sort of power grab to ensure that he remains in power forever that he will be a president for all even those who didn't vote for him and that he will ensure that
