Turkey's main opposition party to stay in parliament

ANKARA - Turkey's main opposition Republican People's Party (CHP) has decided not to withdraw from parliament over Sunday's referendum, a party spokesman was quoted by CNN Turk television as saying.
Earlier on Wednesday, party spokeswoman Selin Sayek Boke said CHP was considering withdrawal from parliament in protest at irregularities in the referendum and called for it to be held again.
"We don't recognize the referendum result," Boke said. "There should be no doubt that we will exercise all our democratic rights against it."
Boke said the referendum should be held again because its legitimacy was being questioned both in Turkey and internationally.
