ANKARA (AA) - A lawmaker from Turkey's main opposition party resigned on Sunday.
"I respectfully inform the public that I have resigned from the membership of the Republican People's Party (CHP)," Teoman Sancar, a lawmaker from western Denizli province, said on Twitter, without specifying any reason.
On Jan. 29, three members of parliament from CHP – Mehmet Ali Celebi, Huseyin Avni Aksoy and Ozcan Ozel – had announced their resignations.
The lawmakers are expected to join the recently launched Homeland Movement headed by Muharrem Ince, a CHP dissident and its presidential candidate for the 2018 election.
CHP now holds 135 out of 600 seats in parliament.
