The government is seeking a three-fifths majority for the proposals in parliament, which would allow the calling of a referendum to let the people have the final say.
The chances of the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) cobbling together such a majority increased on Tuesday when the leader of the Nationalist Movement Party (MHP) indicated he could back the changes.
