Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Wednesday said a parliamentary committee would complete writing a new constitution end of March, adding the government would submit the draft to referendum once it secured the backing it needs for a plebiscite.

The draft needs the support of 330 to 367 lawmakers in a voting in the parliament in order to be submitted to a referendum. The ruling Justice and Development (AK) Party has 326 seats.
