Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has angrily rejected criticism by global monitors of the referendum result that has granted him extra powers but is disputed by the opposition and has exposed bitter divisions in the country.
Bulent Tezcan, deputy chairman of the Republican People's Party, announced the move at the Ankara offices of the electoral board.
The French government said it would "follow with great care" the global monitors' final report in coming weeks, particularly in relation to a reported last-minute change of rules by the electoral boards to allow ballots that had not been officially stamped.
Observers from the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) and the Council of Europe said Sunday's referendum had been an uneven contest.
He also said the electoral board's last-minute decision to allow unstamped ballots had prevented proper record-keeping, meaning that it was now impossible to determine how many invalid or fake votes may have been counted. He accused the board of "changing the rules midgame".
By contrast, Donald Trump joined Russian President Vladimir Putin in congratulating Erdogan, with the Turkish strongman expressing optimism over his relationship with the new USA leader.
"We have said this over and over in my speeches".
"The main opposition party not recognizing the results is not an acceptable thing", Yildirim said.
"It is more important now to maintain the dialogue and to keep communication channels open", he said, adding that dialogue with Ankara had been hard in recent months.
There have been daily street protests in anti-Erdogan neighbourhoods in Istanbul after Sunday's referendum, which the opposition claims was marred by blatant violations.

US President Donald Trump has become the first Western leader to congratulate Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan for winning a controversial referendum that grants him far-reaching, largely unchecked powers.
But the "Yes" vote has even wider implications for Turkey, which joined North Atlantic Treaty Organisation in 1952 and in the last half-century has been engaged in a stalled bid to join the European Union.
German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel said that if Ankara were to bring back the death penalty, the move would be "synonymous with the end of (its) European dream".
On Monday, Erdogan renewed suggestions that Turkey could hold referendums on its bid to join the European Union and on reinstating the death penalty.
The European Union is calling on the Turkish authorities to launch "transparent investigations" into "alleged irregularities" during last weekend's referendum on increased powers for the country's presidency.
Erdogan's margin of victory in the referendum was razor-thin.
The brief statement - issued on Monday evening - underlines the U.S. need for Turkey's support for the Trump administration's new policy of increasing pressure on the Syrian government, as there's only one reference to the April 16 referendum in Turkey and three to the crisis in Syria.
On Monday, global election monitors delivered a scathing verdict on the conduct of the referendum.
There has been no official word from the White House on any planned meeting between Trump and Erdogan.
