The National Unity Party (UBP) has agreed to form a coalition government with the Democratic Party-National Forces (DP-UG).
President Akinci gave the UBP the mandate to form a new coalition last week after the CTP-UBP coalition collapsed. Five UBP minister resigned, bringing down the last government. Differences of opinion between the two parties on signing the economic protocol were cited as top of the list.
UBP party chairman Huseyin Ozgurgun will sign a coalition agreement with DP leader Serdar Denktaş at the National Assembly on Friday morning.
