BRT also reports that MP for the Democrat Party (DP) Serdar Denktaş has announced that he intends to be a candidate in the forthcoming presidential elections.
Making his announcement in Nicosia, Denktaş recalled that he had announced in January 2020 that he would not be a candidate for the April 2020 presidential elections, he added however, that conditions had changed since then.
“I am the son of the Founding President. It is not possible for me to harm his political legacy even if I conflict with him because of the morals I believe. I wanted to see the other candidates. There is a need for an alternative stance against the candidates who do not see any other option than a comprehensive federal solution. The electors know that political interests are not personal but communal at the presidential elections. I, therefore, announce that I will be a candidate for the 11th of October 2020 election.”
