Turkey's President has declared victory in Sunday's vote that grants the presidential office new sweeping powers.

Recep Tayyip Erdogan says it's a historic decision.

51.4% of voters chose to change the constitution.

But opposition groups say they will challenge the result in court and some foreign observers have said the referendum fell short of international standards.
