 SERDAR DENKTASH SAYS "COALITION" WITH NUP NOT POSSIBLEAccording to illegal Bayrak Radio (1530 hrs, 26/7/96) Demo cratic Party (DP) leader Serdar Denktash has said that at this latest stage, a "coalition" between the DP and the National Unity Party (NUP) does not seem possible. Denktash said that his party does not have any more concessions to make to the NUP.
Serdar Denktash replied to questions during the "From Within the Week" program broadcasted live on illegal Bayrak Radio.
The DP leader said that the most ideal way to solve the problems facing the pseudostate would be to set up a "national government" made up of the parties represented at the "Assembly". He said that under the current conditions, however, only a "government" established by a party that can tackle all the prob lems can solve the difficulties facing the pseudostate. Denktash said that the name of the party is not important in this case and that what is important is to have the determination to solve the problems. That is why we still insist on the establishment of an executive "government", he said, adding that this is necessary in order to unravel the big tangle of problems.
He stated that the DP does not insist on being part of the executive "government" and that the NUP and the Republican Turk ish Party (RTP) can set up an executive "government".
Replying to a question, he said that the DP is trying to open a debate on the "presidential" system. He added that, given the conditions in the pseudostate, the "presidential system" is the one that works in a more stable way and one that will prevent the recurrence of the present problems.
