Will Ankara mayor resign?

Turkey's ruling Justice and Development (AK) Party rejected claims about resignation of long-time mayor of capital Ankara, Melih Gokcek.  

"None of the media reports about the resignation of Ankara Mayor Melih Gokcek reflects the truth," AK Party Spokesman and Deputy Chairman Mahir Unal said.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan also spoke about the claims, telling the media in Ankara that no such thing was on the cards at the moment.

"But it doesn't mean that there won't be [such a thing],"  Anadolu Agency cited the president as saying.

Erdogan and Unal's remarks came after reports emerged that Gokcek's name was among other mayors expected to quit following resignations of Istanbul Mayor Kadir Topbas and Duzce Mayor Mehmet Keles.
