Turkish Democrat Party leader Mehmet Agar announced that he resigned as his party only got 5.7 percent of votes according to primary counts, the semi-official Anatolian News Agency reported Sunday.

Turkey's elective law regulates that parties that cannot get 10 percent of votes will have no seats in the parliament.

According to current figures, the ruling Justice and Development got almost 50 percent of vote while the Republican People's Party got nearly 20 percent and the National Movement Party got about 15 percent.

Voting process for electing 550 parliament members has ended across Turkey as of 5:00 p.m.(1400 GMT).

The voting began at 7:00 a.m. (0400 GMT) in 32 eastern and southeastern cities and 8:00 a.m. (0500 GMT) in other 49 cities.
