Was it worth it?

Dünya Executive - - POLITICS -

The referendum result means to carry a country to a “one man” regime, and it will probably have social, economic and political consequenc­es in the medium term. It will become more difficult to achieve success in foreign policy, and the full burden will be put on the AKP’s shoulders. After such a period, it will be but a dream for the AKP to win the election in 2019 with a parliament­ary majority … Don’t be surprised if “no” becomes a missed opportunit­y in the minds of very conservati­ve voters eventually ... Turkey lost a whole year for nothing and waived a correct move it could have made in the future. Just for the sake of winning this referendum, a vulnerabil­ity was caused that could lead to failure. Was it worth it?
