The TRNC’s new interim government has now been formed with a female Prime Minister, Sibel Siber and a Cabinet of technocrats.
The press were all assembled this morning for the handover ceremony between Mr Kucuk and Prime Minister Siber.
However, there was one problem. Mr Kucuk did not show up for the ceremony.
The process was completed without him and afterwards PM Siber issued a press statement saying that Mr Kucuk should have been there and that she hoped that he had a good excuse for his non-attendance.
