The new teachers’ union which was established in the TRNC a few days ago, was created following instructions from the Turkey’s ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) and with the assistance of the Turkish embassy in North Cyprus, a statement from KTOEOS reads.

Head of the Turkish Cypriot Secondary School Teachers Trade Union (KTOEOS) Selma Eylem (main photo), has said that the Turkish Cypriot educators’ union (KIBTES) is an effort by Turkey’s AKP to attack the teachers in the TRNC.

In addition, Turkish Cypriot daily Ortam reports that the United Cyprus Party (BKP) stated that the establishment of KIBTES is a move intended to divide the teachers’ unions.
