In the draft resolution, replace paragraph 31 with the following paragraph:

"The Assembly is confident that the Turkish authorities took all due measures to ensure that the right to vote freely and in full security was upheld for all Turkish citizens. It notes that all civil society organisations freely observed the elections and that this contributed to the transparency of the election process. The Assembly further recognizes that the referendum in Turkey was held under transparent and democratic conditions in which all political parties and groups were able to freely express all their views in the election and the President of the Republic visited the public propaganda quarters of "no" voters."
