massive corruption and there's no telling that when the time comes if he will step down. The Turkish people should fight this.

I agree. Anybody who manipulates the law to allow himself to stay in power does not have anything good on his agenda.

Corruption. There is a reason why government officials are given fixed terms. This is so there's no monopoly in power.

They have already passed a bill increasing his power. I am scared of what might happen.

Recep Tayyip Erdogan greets supporters on August 7, 2016 during a rally against July's failed military coup. Turkish lawmakers begin a second round of voting Wednesday on controversial reforms that would hand sweeping powers to President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

Politicians should never have the ability to extend their own terms. It should be the will of the people unless the state is under communism or something.

People are not really met to stay in power for long periods of time. People can power hungry and it's never a good idea.

The goal is 2023 - This is why the propaganda press of much of the western world are printing negative stories surrounding Erdogan whilst their governments have backed a coup d'etat and supporting Kurdish terrorists to destabilise Turkey.

Corrupt western politicians support all Arab dictators and support apartheid israel, I am sure they would like a puppet dictator for turkey too so they can keep lecturing the world about democracy and free elections

I hope people who read the comments could see how oppositions are hated and blamed as terorist. AKP supporters fullfilled with hate to opposition parties and induviduals like never seen in Turkey.

Why someone elected is a dictator? You make it seem like the parliament is serving a dictatorship which there are 4 parties that elect and make laws and only one of them is the ruling party, that's dictatorship? I guess you're just spilling your hate out against Turkey and their people upon their religion

I just hope he gets more sense with more power. But there is a saying. With power comes responsibility. I just hope he wakes up before Turkey is reduced to a rubble. Pull out of Syria. Make peace with the Kurds. Start negotiating a peace with Syrians and helping the west and Israel destroying Syria. Make peace / peace and more peace. N
