Turkish deputies brawl during debate in parliament

Scuffles have broken out at Turkey’s parliament amid debates over a controversial bill on constitutional amendments, which would expand the powers of the president.

Turkish lawmakers got engaged in physical violence, pushing each other and exchanging blows during a round of voting on Wednesday.

The opposition lawmakers accuse the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) of breaching the law on secrecy of ballot by displaying their votes, Press-TV reports.

The move highlights the ruling party’s pressure on its lawmakers to vote in favor of the amendments, and not independently, the opposition lawmakers said.
