It has been widely reported how the Council of Ministers have been issuing land, citizenships and jobs in the hope of winning votes. They deny these allegations.
Now a new aspect of vote buying has come to light: gun licenses.
In the last meet of the Council of Ministers, 15 revolver licenses were issued and frankly it seems hard to justify these on a rational basis.
Vakiflar Bank president Cem Pismis and fellow director Dervis Eksici have both been issued licenses.
Are they anticipating a bank robbery?
Prominent businessmen Mehmet Cangar and Hasan Kumyali now also have revolver licenses.
Among other questionable licence issues is that to Munur Korman the Antalya Culture Attaché to the TRNC.
