The latest survey of public sentiment on the referendum to introduce a presidential system claims its approval is virtually guaranteed, thanks to the continued majority-support for the ruling AK Party
According to a recent survey, conducted by MAK Consulting Company, nearly 60 percent of the public will be supporting the proposed constitutional changes in the upcoming referendum, which is expected to be held in early April. The recent survey claims that 59.8 percent of Turkish public opinion will be in favor of the amendment package, foreseeing a presidential system that has already been approved in Parliament.
When the survey participants were asked which party they would vote for in a possible general election, more than 50 percent of the participants indicated that they would vote for the Justice and Development Party (AK Party). Whereas the ruling AK Party gained 52 percent of the participants' support, the main opposition Republican People's Party (CHP) received 25 percent support and the opposition Nationalist Movement Party (MHP) received 12 percent support in a possible general election.
The survey further revealed that the pro-PKK Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP) would not pass the electoral threshold that is necessary to gain seats in Parliament. The MAK Company conducted face-to-face interview surveys with 5,400 participants throughout 30 provinces between Jan. 26 and Feb. 1, asking the participants about their preferences in the possible election.In the light of the survey, 52 percent of the participants feel that they are well enough informed regarding the constitutional amendment package and its contexts, whereas 34 percent of the participants indicated that they had little information about the constitutional change and 14 percent are indecisive.
