ANKARA (AA) - Turkey's opposition Good (IYI) Party's deputy chair Tuba Vural Cokal resigned from the party on Thursday.

"The way we started out to further activate Turkish nationalism ... fell short of expectations," Cokal, a lawmaker from southern Antalya province said on Twitter.

She also noted that the way under the leadership of party chair Meral Aksener did not meet the expectations.
