Referendum a vote against coup constitution: Turkey's PM

Turkey's prime minister said on Saturday that the constitutional amendment package was a project of the nation and a voting against the coup constitution.

Addressing citizens in southern Adana province, Turkish Prime Minister and chairman of Justice and Development (AK) Party Recep Tayyip Erdogan said, "This is not a project of AK Party or mine. This project does not belong to a couple of people, but it belongs to the nation".

Erdogan noted that the referendum to be held in September would leave aside the "law of superiors" and provide a transition to "the rule of law" in Turkey.

The constitutional amendment would make significant contributions to daily life, rights & freedoms, democracy and economy, moreover, it would expand horizons and strengthen visions, the Turkish prime minister said.

Commenting on recent acts of terrorism, Erdogan said, "Our civilization is based on love and brotherhood. Some evil circles have staged dirty scenarios in some of our towns. Do not ever forget that they want us to get angry".

Noting that such circles desired to keep citizens away from common sense, Erdogan also said, "We have never fallen into this trap throughout history and we will not fall today or in the future".
