    ISTANBUL - Polling stations in Italy have opened for Turkish voters in a constitutional referendum on the presidential system. The voting operations are being held at the Turkish embassy in Rome and at the Turkish consulate in Milan.

    Turkish nationals who have the right to vote and reside in Italy are just over 14,000.

    Overall, almost three million Turkish voters living abroad can vote at polling stations open in 120 diplomatic missions across 57 countries until Sunday, a week before the vote is scheduled to take place in Turkey.

    According to several surveys, the outcome of the referendum is uncertain and the vote of Turkish nationals living abroad - about 5% of voters - could be key.
