YSK rejected all appeals against the result of the referendum on April 19 but the opposition still vowed to continue the struggle based on numerous irregularities for the justification of recount and unaccepting the referendum.

The YSK voted out of 11 the ten accepted the past referendum held in Turkey to empower Erdogan, only a single vote was for the dissolving of this referendum.

Soon after the referendum results the Republican Party and the Kurdish Peoples Democratic party, had blamed the irregularities in this referendum and refused to accept its unfair result, these parties also filed an application to the supreme election board of the country for dissolving this referendum results.

After this result strikes were done by the opposition parties, and the ODP party is also not attending the parliament after Erdogan’s empowerment.
