President Eroğlu’s Office has issued a statement denying reports in the Turkish and North Cyprus press which claim that he will be running for office again, ‘Kibris Postasi’ reports.
The statement read:
“The news which emerged in several Turkish and North Cyprus press agencies that our President Dr. Dervis Eroğlu has declared his a candidacy in the presidential elections does not reflect the truth. As can be remembered, in the statement given by our President to the public, he had noted that after the 15th of November he will make the necessary evaluations and announce whether he will be a candidate or not.
Our president has not given a statement about this subject to any local or foreign press member. He has not stated that ‘I am a candidate.’ Our president Eroğlu would make such a statement first to the North Cyprus media before any other media institution”.
