Turkish Cypriot daily Kibris newspaper (16.09.15) reports that former Turkish Cypriot negotiator, Kudret Ozersay has decided to establish a new political party in the occupied area of the Republic of Cyprus. Ozersay had been an “independent candidate” in the April 2015 so-called presidential elections and received 20% of the votes.
Ozersay said that according to a decision taken together with his political partners, he will organize a press conference as soon as their preparations are completed and come before the “people” with the new political formation’s vision and cadre.
Ozersay told the paper that they had made the necessary assessments and they will not leave the “people” without an alternative in the next “elections”. He said that many persons participating in the existing political parties have expressed interest to join his party, but he is not positive to this idea, because “there is a very serious lack of confidence and reaction to the existing politicians and political parties in the society”.
