Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan (C), flanked by his wife Emine Erdogan (rear L), acknowledges supporters, during a rally, as he leaves after delivering a speech at the conservative Justice and Development Party (AKP) headquarters in Istanbul, on April 16, 2017, following the results of a nationwide referendum that will determine Turkey's future destiny.
Erdogan on April 16, 2017 hailed Turkey for making a "historic decision" as he claimed victory in the referendum on a new constitution expanding his powers.

But Turkey's two main opposition parties said they would challenge the results. / AFP PHOTO / Bulent Kilic        (Photo credit should read BULENT KILIC/AFP/Getty Images)
