The voting procedure on the referendum was not fair and took place in a climate of fear. The narrow result shows how divided the country is. Europe and Germany need to do everything possible to support moderate forces in Turkey, including moderate forces within the AKP. Dictatorship and plutocracy are bitter reality for the people in Turkey. The democracy in Turkey is now destroyed, but nobody should give up hope for a democratic change.”
