The company formed by the local councils (BESKI) and a legal public organisation in the form of an Independent Water Board conforms to the Economic and Financial Cooperation protocol signed between the TRNC and Turkey, the General Secretary of the CTP Tufan Erhurman, has said.
Addressing the TRNC Assembly on Thursday, he said that the 2013–2015 protocol anticipated that a new organisation would be formed to manage the distribution of water from Turkey, waste water and irrigation systems. With appropriate financing, a transfer of operating rights could be implemented.
This was how the Independent Water Board and BESKI were compatible with the protocol. The ‘build-run-handover’ model did not apply to the board or BESKI, Erhurman said.
