President Eroglu under fire

There have been continuing skirmishes between President Eroglu and Prime Minister Irsen Kucuk.

Mr Kucuk has issued a statement saying that Mr Eroglu left the party in debt but that he had settled this. Mr Eroglu retorted by saying that the source of these repayments should be investigated.

Kucuk is stating that UBP party funds were being transferred to the Eroglu family via advertising agencies. Eroglu is countering this by saying that he in fact paid off party debts and that the UBP is now in a far stronger position financially. He continued his counter-attack by saying that the UBP should be investigated as its only income is State payments but that it had major cash balances.
