SULAIMANI — Voting results for the Turkish constitutional referendum are in for the largely Kurdish provinces of eastern Turkey.

The number of provinces voting “Yes” and “No” are almost as evenly split as the results.

The heavily Kurdish populated areas of the southeast mostly voted “No” but areas further north and west, many with comparatively smaller Kurdish populations, mostly voted “Yes.”

Tunceli (Dersim) held the highest percentage of “No” votes at 80 percent, followed by Diyarbakir and Hakkari, both at 67 percent.

Erzurum held the highest number of “Yes” votes at 74 percent, followed by Bingol at 72 percent.

Overall results nationally stand at 51.41 percent “Yes” and 48.59 percent “No.”
