Avalanche of new Citizens

Avalanche of new Citizens

It has been alleged that a well-known tactic for whatever TRNC party is in government, uses its authority to push through citizenship applications before an election. These grateful new citizens then vote for their benefactor.

As soon as early elections were announced, the Council of Ministers has been inundated with citizenship applications.

Since the start of the week, the Immigration department has been processing thousands of applications and has put its employees on overtime.

Rumours are that Prime Minister Kucuk ordered that four thousand new citizens be made. He has denied this but the long queues outside the Immigration office do point to a renewed push for citizenship.
