Turkish Foreign Minister Abdullah Gul withdrew his candidacy for presidential elections after Parliament failed to reach a quorum Sunday needed to elect a new president, the state-run Anatolia news agency reported. Parliament was short of the 367 legislators needed to proceed with the vote after holding two separate roll-calls, Speaker Bulent Arinc said. The vote was being repeated after Turkey's Constitutional Court annulled a first-round of voting last week saying not enough legislators were present.
