By Rufiz Hafizoglu - Trend:

Members of the Turkish oppositional Republican People's Party (CHP) urged the party leader Kemal Kilicdaroglu to resign, according to the Turkish newspaper Hurriyet.

Reportedly, this demand was made by over one hundred members of the party, led by Emine Ulker Tarhan, who is the member of parliament from the CHP.

It was also reported that the CHP members explained this demand by the fact that the policy pursued by Kilicdaroglu has led to a complete defeat in the recent presidential election.

Turkey held the presidential election on August 10. The election was won by Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan who gained 51.8 percent of the vote.
