  • Description

    Turkish Prime Minister Suleyman Demirel said yesterday (12 Feb.) he would stay in office despite an opposition call for his government's resignation after Parliament rejected its budget.

    Mr. Demirel suffered his worst Parliamentary defeat last night when 41 right wing rebels in his Justice Party voted with the Opposition, rejecting the budget and bringing the government close to collapse.

    The Justice Party's disciplinary body has recommended expulsion of the 41 rebels. Mr. Demirel did not make the budget vote one of conscience, but he warned that any party members who votes against the government would be automatically expelled.

    The budget was rejected by 224 votes to 214.
