Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Friday vowed to press for a new constitution for Turkey if he is elected president in elections on August 10.

"A new constitution on the path to new Turkey will be one of our priorities if elected president... A new constitution means a new future," he told supporters at a rally in Istanbul.

Changing the constitution would allow Erdogan to give greater powers to the presidency, until now a largely ceremonial role.
