The 'Yes' campaign to give Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan expanded powers was on course to win a tightly-contested referendum on Sunday although the 'No' camp had closed the gap, according to initial results.

The 'Yes' campaign had won 51.3 percent of the vote while the 'No' campaign had mustered 48.7 percent, the election commission said in figures quoted by state news agency Anadolu, in a count based on 99 percent of the ballot boxes.
