Erdogan minister in Germany to lobby Turks on constitutional reform
by Friederike Heine
Turkey's justice minister will address Turkish expatriates in Germany on Thursday in a campaign for constitutional reform in his country that would expand the powers of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
Justice Minister Bekir Bozdag, a member of Erdogan's Justice and Development Party (AKP), will give a speech in the southern town of Gaggenau.
Local officials said the event had been registered as a meeting of the AKP-affiliated Union of European Turkish Democrats (UETD).
Germany is home to Turkey's largest diaspora. Some 1.4 million people of Turkish descent are eligible to vote in the referendum set for April 16.
