On Sunday Turks vote on a major change to their system of government — eliminating the position of prime minister and give its powers to the president.

NPR’s Peter Kenyon (@pkenyonnpr) reports that the latest polls suggest a narrow lead in favor of the changes, with a large number of voters still saying they haven’t made up their minds.

This segment aired on April 14, 2017.
