Turkish Cypriot PM resigns on Wednesday

(MENAFN) On Wednesday, Oct. 13 the premier of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC) submitted his resignation to President Ersin Tatar.

“As I observed that the government is no longer sustainable, I just submitted my resignation,” stated Ersan Saner while addressing reporters after his gathering with Tatar.

Saner further said: “early elections should be held as soon as possible."

Ersan Saner is the head of the National Unity Party (UBP). The tripartite coalition of UBP, the Democratic Party and the Rebirth Party was endorsed by President Tatar in the past December.

Cyprus has been stuck in a decades-long disagreement between Greek and Turkish Cypriots, regardless of a string of diplomatic attempts by the UN to reach a inclusive settlement.
