On his official Twitter account, Ibrahim Melih Gokcek said he had met with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Monday.

 

"On Saturday, I will hopefully bring together the Ankara Greater Municipality Council for an extraordinary session and bid farewell to my council member colleagues and submit my resignation," Gokcek said.

 

Gokcek has been Ankara's mayor for 23 years.
