takis. is returning to office with sweeping new executive powers he says it's a win for democracy international monitors of criticize the outcome of the presidential election saying the ruling party had unfair advantages his main opposition rival no harm and she has conceded defeat but warned the ones going power is dangerous sunday's vote is in a powerful new executive presidency long sought by a who insist i'll be plenty of checks and balances he will now be able to issue decrees but not on issues where there's already a law and place a president also has the authority to appoint and remove ministers and civil servants without parliaments approval and to choose six members of the country's highest judicial authority parliament selects seven he can declare
10:02 pm
a state of emergency for up to six months but parliament can shorten all scrapped his decision and under the new constitution can run for another term which means he could stay in power for ten more years well let's go live to who's been following the story for us in ankara and the historic election in the country one that puts a great deal of power in the hands of one man what does this mean for turkey. well depends who you speak to mario those who are in favor of turning the political system into a presidential one say this is going to make turkey stronger more efficient and more able to compete with other countries that maybe find it difficult to follow through on long term political programs because of the constant change in power as it takes place there with the instability that comes with having maybe a diverse different political bodies that have
10:03 pm
a say in the way things are run if you speak to those who are opposed to it they will say well actually it is a dangerous precedence the turkey is going good its words the unknown from a parliamentary system that shared to the power with the presidency as well as other institutions through a system that puts a lot of or the vast majority of the decision making into one institution namely the presidency what this means practically for sure that is on doubt it is that the act party and president do want to have proven once again that they enjoy the vast majority of supports within the country that it is their vision for turkey that still controls or the still resonates with the vast majority of those in the streets and the people of turkey is once they have once again mandated them to take the country forward albeit with maybe a few warning signs particularly considering that these weren't just presidential elections my arm they were probably mention elections as well in the act party lost
10:04 pm
its supermajority the truth as majority i had and something that is seen by critics but also by himself as a sign from the street from the tycoons public to the party that was the still enjoy the most support there it's not unequivocal support it is not blind obedience or allegiance from the psychist people there still have some concerns with regards to some of the policies they have been pursuing all right thank you very much from ankara and you're not ashamed. well many observers were surprised by the size of a victory in its midst takes a look now at how things went wrong for the main opposition party. your version your it all looked so promising for turkey's center left opposition party in the days before sunday's elections such as here in is me but looks can be deceptive now my heart i mean jay on the republican people's party after work out how they can ever successfully challenge an even more powerful president. and his ak party
10:05 pm
ambushed us. the new regime just takes effects from today only words is a major danger for turkey a single party or a single person becoming the state and at the same time the executive legislative and the judiciary is a problem of existence in itself and will continue to be a major danger for turkey. charismatic and crowd pleasing in jay won thirty percent of votes which missed his own minimum target by five percent he'd hoped to force a second round run off with her to one while injured in cheney is the only one to have increased the c.h.p. vote but he copied earlier ones one man rule approach so he lost potential votes from the ak party voters who had enough of that sort of thing he should have sold themselves as part of a team and focused more on the economy the c.h.p. and other opposition parties will need to revitalize demoralize supporters. i'm not quite sure how much worse it should get to increase opposition votes we build up our hopes on the c.h.p.
10:06 pm
each election we are disappointed in getting done more i mean jay was very good but the c.h.p. needs to reform it has co-create with other parties and prioritize the national interests another challenge for the opposition parties is making their voice heard in a parliament now stripped of much of its power to hold to account a government run by a president with strengthened executive powers in this election campaign the opposition mainly tried to persuade voters that have been in power too long they didn't say much about what the alternatives looked like the c.h.p. will say that was because calling early elections gave them a little time well now they've up to five years to work out what their vision of turkey would be but it's with al-jazeera anchor. the libyan coast guard has picked up one hundred forty eight african refugees and
