The Council of Ministers has been accused by the Turkish Republican Party (CTP) of granting TRNC citizenship in an illegal and unfair manner.
In a written statement, the CTP noted that the government blithely continues its practice of granting citizenship with a decision by the Council of Ministers. This is regardless of how long the new citizens have been living in the TRNC. These moves are against the law and violates the principles of equality and justice, said the statement.
There is no justification for this and it is unfair on the people who have lived in the TRNC for over ten years and still have not been given citizenship, the CTP statement said.
