Main Opposition Will Not Form Coalition With UBP

The Republican Turkish Party (CTP) has also decided that it will not cooperate with the UBP [in forming a coalition] and therefore holding new early parliamentary elections has come onto the agenda. Turkish Cypriot daily ‘Afrika’ points out that any alternative to establishing a coalition government without UBP’s participation requires the cooperation of at least four parties.

Meanwhile earlier on, Turkish Cypriot daily ‘Kibris’ reported that Kudret Ozersay, chairman of the People’s Party (HP) said that his party will not even hold meetings with the National Unity Party (UBP) to establish a coalition government.

After a three-hour meeting of his party during which the results of the elections were assessed, Ozersay noted that they could hold consultations with all the other parties for establishing a coalition which would not include the UBP.

He argued, however, that it is very important to know whether this coalition will be a government which will administrate the country and perform well or will it be a transitional government which will lead the country to new elections or it will be a government which will examine the illegal activities [granting citizenship to buy votes] that took place prior to the elections.
