The Republican Turkish Party (CTP) is concerned about the effects of the new coalition government on the future of the Cyprus negotiations and the granting of new citizenships, CTP deputy Ferdi Soyer has said.

Speaking on Kibris TV about recent political developments, he said that the new coalition between the National Unity Party (UBP) and the Democratic Party (DP), will try to put pressure on President Akinci regarding his efforts at the negotiating table. He added that there will be great international reaction against Turkey and the Turkish Cypriots if more citizenships are granted.

Soyer also said that an “election atmosphere” had developed in the TRNC has after the collapse of the previous coalition government, between the Republican Turkish Party (CTP) and UBP.

Asked if he thought that Turkey was blackmailing the TRNC on the issue of funding, so that it can function and pay civil servants’ salaries, Soyer stated that this is a new type of blackmail, adding that this forms a large part of the status quo.
