    Talat wins parliamentary elections in Turkish occupied areas

    Nicosia, Feb 21 (CNA) The Republican Turkish Party of Mehmet Ali Talat is the winner of Sundays parliamentary elections in the Turkish occupied northern part of Cyprus, increasing its strength to 44.45 percent and its deputies in the 50-seat parliament from 19 to 25.

    In statements shortly before the results were finalized, Talat said his party has not yet decided whether it will cooperate again with Serdar Denktashs Democratic Party or if it will seek cooperation with the Peace and Democracy Movement of Mustafa Akinci in forming a new coalition government. He said the decision will be taken by his party.

    The Democratic Party improved its standing 13.49 percent, compared to 12.93 percent in the previous elections, but lost one seat and now has six.

    The Peace and Democracy Movement secured 5.81 percent compared to 13.14 percent in 2003 and will have a single seat in the illegal parliament, instead of six.

    The National Unity Party of Dervis Eroglu took 31.71 percent and 18 seats, compared to 32.93 percent and the same number of seats in the 2003 vote. He described his party's performance as a failure.

    Another three political formations did not manage to enter the so-called parliament in the Turkish occupied north.

    The alliance of the Communal Liberation Party and United Cyprus under Hussein Angolemli garnered 2.41 percent, the New Party of the Turkish settlers under Nuri Cevikel took 1.60 percent, and the National Justice Party formed by ultranationalist ''grey wolves'' got 0.52 percent.

    Talat described his win as a victory of the Turkish Cypriot community that wishes peace.
