Erdogan denounces 'crusader mentality'
The EU had "made us wait at its door for 54 years", Erdogan said.
The opposition is particularly incensed by a last-minute move by the YSK to accept ballot documents in envelopes without an official stamp. Global monitors from the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe said the move undermined safeguards against fraud.
That drew a harsh rebuke from Erdogan and criticism from Prime Minister Binali Yildirim.
Kılıçdaroğlu said he respected the nation's will but the decision on unsealed ballots had overshadowed the results.
Opposition parties have promised to challenge the outcome.
Esra Ozyurek, an associate professor at the European Institute of the London School of Economics, said the fact that Erdogan had spoken so swiftly on the death penalty was an important indication.
The head of Turkey's Supreme Election Council (YSK) head has given assurances that the objections to Sunday's referendum results will be evaluated.

Georgia election a 'wake-up call' for US Republicans
The White House, which monitored the elections closely, pushed back against the suggestion it was a referendum on Trump. Ms Handel did not mention Mr Trump during a 10-minute speech on Tuesday night, according to local media.
Global election monitors, including from the Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE), noted a series of irregularities, and said the decision to accept as valid ballots without official stamps undermined safeguards against fraud and was contrary to Turkish law. Similar queues were also reported in front of an election board office in Istanbul.
With each passing month, the prospect of adding Turkey as an European Union member seemed to be retreating.
Under the changes, most of which will only come into effect after the next elections, due in 2019, the president will appoint the cabinet and an undefined number of vice presidents, and will be able to select and remove senior civil servants without parliamentary approval. Other changes are to be implemented sooner, including scrapping a requirement that the president not be a member of any political party. This would allow Erdogan to rejoin the governing AK Party he co-founded, or to lead it. Additionally, Mr Erdogan said he would approve the death penalty if it was supported in a referendum or a bill was submitted to him through parliament.
"We'll probably continue to see what we've been seeing for the past few months, a pretty anti-EU narrative, he's not going to change this". "We call on the Turkish authorities to consider the next steps very carefully and to seek the broadest possible national consensus in the follow-up to the referendum".
A few hours earlier, Spicer said during a press briefing that the USA will wait until the global commission of election monitors completes its report: "Before we start getting into their government system, let this commission get through its work".
After the 28-nation European Union gave the referendum victory of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan the frostiest of receptions and even questioned its legitimacy, the president took a step that may have been one too far: talking about reinstating the death penalty. Cavusoglu said that he and U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson would finalize the date according to the two presidents' schedules.
