A recent survey conducted by MAK Consultancy found that 57 percent of the Turkish public favors a presidential system over the current parliamentary system. The ruling Justice and Development Party (AK Party) would garner 55 percent of the vote if elections were held today. When asked whether they would be in favor of a Turkish-style presidential system, 57 percent of the participants said yes, while 33 percent said no. Another poll in mid-April by the Gezici Research Company, which strongly opposes the ruling party, found that 56 percent of the Turkish public would favor a presidential system. While debates roil over a proposed new constitution and a possible presidential system, the recent survey came as a surprise for those who oppose the ruling party.In a survey conducted on March 26-27, 56 percent said they would vote in favor of a presidential system. A referendum is expected later this year on a new constitution as well as a presidential system. A poll in early February by the Ankara-based Objective Research Center (ORC) revealed that 56.1 percent of participants supported the presidential system. The survey's administrators held face-to-face interviews with 8,329 participants from 30 provinces between Jan. 27 and Feb. 3. It also found that support for the AK Party stands at 52.4 percent.
