ANKARA (Reuters) - Votes in favour of Turkish constitutional changes that could give President Tayyip Erdogan sweeping new powers stood at 63 percent with just under a quarter of ballots counted, broadcaster NTV said on Sunday.

Polls closed at 4 p.m. (1300 GMT) in the east of the country and at 5 p.m. elsewhere.
