The CTP party parliamentary assembly convened on Monday to decide who they would back in the second round of the elections.

Speaking to the press after the meeting, party leader and Prime Minister Özkan Yorgancioglu said that the party had decided to actively support independent candidate Mustafa Akinci in the second round of the presidential elections.

Earlier on in the the day, the UBP party held its own assembly. Party leader Hüseyin Özgürgün, chairing the meeting said that incumbent President Dervis Eroğlu’s experience was needed for the future of TRNC.

Calling UBP members who did not support Eroğlu in the first round “resentful”, Özgürgün said “We will do what’s necessary after the elections regarding the ones who didn’t support Eroğlu”.
