The government's resolution was not able to get the simple majority vote
in the parliament; hence it was rejected.  Out of 534 parliamentarians
only 264 supported the resolution when at least 268  supporters were
needed --251 opposed, 19 abstained.

As the parliament was in this 5 hour, rather turbulent closed session,
hundreds of thousands of anti-war protesters were on the streets of Ankara.
