ANKARA | Tuesday, Apr 17 2018 IST
Expected changes to the Turkish constitution will be fully implemented with the presidential elections scheduled for November 2019, President Tayyip Erdogan said on Tuesday, in an apparent response to a suggestion for early polls.

Erdogan's comments came after the head of the nationalist MHP party suggested holding presidential elections in August this year.

Turks narrowly backed a constitutional change last year to change the constitution and grant Erdogan sweeping powers. The changes are due to become effective in the next elections. REUTERS SDR 1505
