Turkish election board rejects call for Ankara recount

ANKARA - The local election board in the Turkish capital Ankara has rejected a call from the main opposition CHP party to recount the results of Sunday's local election in the city, a source in the CHP told Reuters on Friday.

The source said the CHP would appeal the election board's decision.
