Turkey votes in critical test for Erdogan party

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan holds a Koran as he speaks during the opening ceremony of the Selehaddin Eyyubi airport in the eastern city of Hakkari, on May 26, 2015Turkey on Sunday votes in legislative elections with President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's Islamic-rooted ruling party facing the biggest poll challenge of its 13 years in power as it seeks a mandate to change the constitution. Erdogan, who served as premier for over a decade before becoming president in August last year, wants the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) that he co-founded to secure a two-thirds majority to change basic law and transform Turkey to a presidential system from a parliament-based one. The main uncertainty is whether the pro-Kurdish People's Democratic Party (HDP) -- which also courts support from women and gays with its liberal social policies -- can overcome the tough 10 percent threshold needed to win seats in the 550-member parliament.

Danish rightwing party to push for British-style EU referendum
By Sabina Zawadzki VEJLE, Denmark (Reuters) - A Danish rightwing party expected to hold the balance of power after an election later this month has endorsed a British-style referendum on EU membership, a position that could crack the pro-EU consensus of northern Europe's political elite. British Prime Minister David Cameron, who won re-election last month, says he wants to renegotiate aspects of Britain's relationship with the EU and hold an in-out referendum on membership by the end of 2017. Danish People's Party (DF) leader Kristian Thulesen Dahl said the reforms sought by Cameron were similar to those his party was seeking: limits to access to benefits for EU migrants, cutting the EU's budget and bureaucracy, and ending a commitment to an "ever closer union" contained in the Treaty of Rome.
