The recently re-elected Prime Minister Irsen Kucuk and contender Ahmet Kasif case has commenced at the Lefkosa High Court this morning where Mr Kasif was present with his lawyers. Mr Kasif who is the UBP Member of Parliament for Famagusta, along with his supporters, has refused to recognise Mr Kucuk as Prime Minister following a dispute between the two candidates at the UBP annual convention over a week ago.

At that convention the current PM, Irsen Kucuk  narrowly beat Mr Ahmet Kasif in a vote to be Prime Minister. Just before Bayram, Mr Kasif took the matter to court, claiming that the selection process was unconstitutional.
