All eyes are on the council of ministers while people are wondering if winter time, which begins in Europe on October 29, will be applied to the TRNC as well.

Last year the UBP/DP coalition government decided to follow Turkey’s decision not to alter the clocks for winter time, thus creating a lot of problems especially for school children in the darker mornings.

The chairman of KTAMS (Turkish Cypriot civil servant association), Ahmet Kaptan stated that he hopes that the government learns from last year’s tragic events and will decide to put the clock back by one hour.

The chairman of KTOEOS (Turkish Cypriot secondary school teachers’ union) said that “the government must stop following the time of Saudi Arabia”.
