    [01] Eleven thousand new voters in the early "elections"; Nolan: this does not seem normal

    Under the title "11 thousand new voters", Turkish Cypriot daily Haberdar newspaper (21.06.13) reports that Nevvar Nolan, chairman of the so-called higher election council ("YSK"), has said the number of the voters for the early "elections" to be held on 28 July increased by eleven thousand persons since the "parliamentary elections" of 2009 and added that this number reached 172 thousand and 528 persons "for now". Noting that there are some allegations that this is normal, Nolan said "it does not seem that way to me".

    Nolan went on and noted: "In order for being a voter, you should reside in the country in parallel to being a citizen. You should reside so that your registration in the voter lists to be made. So that your registration to be made in the voter list of the region of your residence. We have many citizens who live abroad. However, I am sorry, if your permanent residence is not within the borders of the TRNC, you cannot vote in the elections held in the TRNC, because you are not a voter. Are there not such examples in the voter lists, you may ask. There might be some. Sorting them out is easy".

    Nolan predicted that the turnout in the "elections" of the 28th of July will be low because this is a period during which many people travel abroad for holidays and expressed the view that people will not cancel their holidays in order to vote. He recalled that the turnout in the "elections" of 2009 was around 81-82%.

    Turkish Cypriot daily Haberdar newspaper (21.06.13) reports that the self-styled assembly of the breakaway regime in the occupied area of Cyprus decided yesterday to be represented in the meeting of the European Parliament (EP), which will be held between 1 and 4 July in Strasbourg. According to the decision, Ozdil Nami and Teberruken Ulucay from the Republican Turkish Party ? United Forces (CTP-BG) and Mehmet Tancer from the National Unity Party (UBP) will travel to Strasbourg for participating in the EP's meeting.

    [03] Arinc denies claims of resignation says news on the issue has bad intention

    Turkish daily Milliyet newspaper (21.06.13) reports that the Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Bulent Arinc denied reports claiming that he attempted to resign from his posts in the government and his post as MP with the Justice and Development Party (AKP).

    "Reports stating that I left the Cabinet, and that I resigned from my posts, and that my cabinet colleagues tried to convince me, and that I only changed my mind after the president's intervention, are completely untrue," Arinc said in a statement noting: "Such a report could not come out with 'good intentions'".

    Yesterday Turkish daily Taraf (20.06.13) reported the following on the issue:

    "A major argument took place between Prime Minister Erdogan and Assistant Prime Minister Bulent Arinc at the Cabinet meeting discussing the Gezi Park incidents. Afterwards, Bulent Arinc left the meeting saying, "I am resigning from the party and as minister." When the other ministers failed to talk Arinc down in the corridor they immediately informed President of the Republic Abdullah Gul. As a result of Gul's efforts to talk him down, Arinc took back his resignation. This resignation has been under discussion at both the Presidential Mansion and the Prime Ministry for 10 days. Bulent Arinc stepped in as proxy prime minister when Erdogan went to Tunisia.

    Erdogan was angry with Arinc for first speaking with the President of the Republic about the Gezi incidents then apologizing to the environmentalist protestors, announcing that the message had been received, stating that a referendum could be held if necessary and for his placating attitude.

    Arinc appeared before the cameras following this six and a half hour meeting. The tension on his face was visible even on screen. During this lengthy meeting an argument took place that has never happened to date. The AKP's and government's number two man left the meeting threatening to resign."

    [04] EU decision on the opening of Chapter 22 postponed; criticisms by Turkey

    Reporter Bar?1n Yinan?, writing in Turkish daily H?rriyet Daily News (online, 20.06.13), under the title "Critical EU decision about Turkey postponed to June 24", writes that the decision of whether or not to delay Turkey's accession talks with the European Union has been postponed to June 24, as members of the 27-nation bloc try to change the position of Germany, which is insisting on a halt to negotiations as a response to Ankara's crackdown on protestors.

    On June 24, the Foreign Ministers of the 27-nation bloc will also meet but the disagreement over Turkey was not put on the agenda of the meeting, according to EU sources. This seems to be a deliberate decision in order to provide more space for behind the scenes talks between member countries. "If the issue was put on the agenda of the ministers, that would have put the whole problem under the spotlight and the positions could have become more entrenched," an EU official who asked to remain anonymous told the H?rriyet Daily News. Member countries trying to convince Germany said that the EU could only address all of the issues of concern in Turkey by remaining engaged with Ankara.

    A Foreign Ministry official said the chapter had great importance. "The chapter will mark an important milestone in our relations with the EU. We are still awaiting for the common sense to prevail so that this chapter will be opened at the end of this month," the official told the H?rriyet Daily News, recalling that the decision-making process among the 27 countries was still continuing. "In the case of failure of the opening of this chapter, we will be obliged to give a reaction," the official stressed, without giving details.

    However, suspending political dialogue, cancelling high-level visits to and from Brussels and calling Turkey's permanent representative to the EU back to Ankara for consultations, are among potential measures the Turkish government is mulling over.

    According to Ankara Anatolia news agency (20.06.13), Egemen Ba1, Turkey's EU Minister, also criticized Merkel on Thursday, saying that the German Chancellor should not use Turkey as "domestic political material" for the elections. "If Mrs. Merkel looks into it, she will see that those who mess around with Turkey do not have an auspicious end," he said.

    On the same issue, HDN (20.06.13) reports that the leader of the main opposition Republican People's Party (CHP) has written a letter to German Chancellor Angela Merkel, urging her not to block Turkey's EU accession talks.

    "It would be an unjust, improper and wrong approach to take the attitude that Turkey won't be able join the European Union," CHP leader Kemal K1l1?darolu wrote in the letter. Merkel's conservatives rejected Turkish membership of the European Union in their election program, saying the country would "overburden" the bloc because of its size and economy.

    K1l1?darolu backed Germany's reactions over the "regressive situation [of Turkey] in the domains of democracy, freedoms and human rights" in the letter. "These criticisms would certainly have an impact on the [ruling Justice and Development Party] AKP government. However, it would be an unjust, improper and wrong manner if these criticisms addressed to the AKP were to slow Turkey ? EU ties, especially Turkey's accession process to the EU. The opening of new and important chapters that would strengthen Turkey's democratic base would renew the Turkish people's commitment to the EU."

    Meanwhile, Deputy Prime Minister Bekir Bozda criticized Germany's stance and stressed that EU countries always found excuses to bloc Turkey's EU membership. "The countries which are members of the European Union should be honest. Even though we completed all the requirements we have been asked for perfectly, they always block Turkey's way with some excuses every time," Bozda said, adding that Turkey would stand as the sixth biggest economy in Europe.

    Finally, Turkish daily Today's Zaman (online, 20.06.13) reports that renowned pianist Faz1l Say has appealed to German Chancellor Angela Merkel, saying in a letter that her opposition to Turkey's membership bid for the European Union has saddened Turkey's protesters while benefiting Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoan.

    [05] Yildiz confirmed gas pipeline from N.Iraq; he met with Gazprom's official

    Turkish daily Today's Zaman (online, 21.06.13) reports that following a statement on Wednesday by Iraq's Kurdish Regional Government (KRG) that a pipeline to carry oil to the Turkish border is scheduled for completion by October, Ankara says such construction is possible.

    Turkish Energy Minister Taner Y1ld1z said on Thursday in Russia's St. Petersburg: "The oil and natural gas, which will flow over Turkey to Europe and to the world markets, is very important for Iraq." Y1ld1z's veiled confirmation of Hawrami's words adds to concerns that it will provoke Baghdad after a calm few months following earlier tension. Y1ld1z added that Turkish companies and developers operated in line with Iraqi laws and that there are a number of new projects to develop in the country's north and south.

    Y1ld1z met Gazprom's Management Committee Chairman Aleksey Miller in St. Petersburg as Turkey approached its major natural gas provider Russia for a possible discount in prices. Y1ld1z said they failed to agree on a discount in prices for Turkey "as market conditions do not allow it."

    On the same issue, Ankara Anatolia news agency (20.06.13) reports that Yildiz, speaking to reporters after the meeting with Miller, said: "We have taken the opportunity to talk extensively to Gazprom, Rosneft and Rosatom about international projects in Turkey", adding "the meeting was really useful".

    Yildiz said that during the meeting they discussed Turkey's increasing natural gas demand, gas storage systems, as well as natural gas plants.

    [06] Turkish government, Kurds in intense talks over legal steps

    Turkish daily H?rriyet Daily News (online, 21.06.13) reports that the co-chairs of the Peace and Democracy Party (BDP), Selahattin Demirta and G?ltan K1anak, accompanied by their deputy group chairs, Pervin Buldan and 0dris Baluken, held a meeting with Justice Minister Sadullah Ergin and Deputy Prime Minister Beir Atalay late on June 19 to discuss the course of the peace process, upon the BDP's demand to accelerate efforts on the legal reform package.

    "We have conveyed our concerns, expectations and demands. They have told us that they will give their response after consultations with the prime minister," Demir ?elik, the BDP's Mu deputy, told reporters. The BDP handed over a 25-article draft democratization package on which the Justice Ministry is still working. Atalay, on the other hand, argued that the Gezi Park incidents had been provoked to stop the peace process.

    Since the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) said they were working on a package and yet were not able to finish evaluating the previous proposal of the BDP, the negotiations are left to next week, after the AKP discusses the matter at its Cabinet meeting. The AKP urged creating a common delegation with the participation of the BDP so as to collectivize the proposals.

    ?elik once more voiced the BDP's demand for Parliament to continue working on the legislation package as a "token of will," instead of taking a 3-month break, saying "Education in mother tongue, freedom of religion, belief and conscience alongside regulations on private life must definitely be done." ?elik added that since upon the opening of Parliament election time will have arrived, legal reforms will not be carried through. The fact that the members of the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) have withdrawn does not mean that they will not return ever, he said.

    Among the BDP's demands were granting ?calan, serving life sentence in 0mral1 island, the opportunity to meet his lawyers, leaders of civil society organizations and wise persons, alongside amending the Anti-Terror Law (TMK), the Turkish Criminal Code (TCK), and removing the election threshold prior to Parliament's recess. Additionally, long detention periods must be eliminated, according to the BDP.

    Good economic results from the peace process

    Moreover, HDN reports that Turkey has started to see good economic results from the peace process, especially in the eastern and southeastern provinces along with the state incentive system, which was adopted on June 20, 2012.

    "The number of certified subsidized investments has increased to 566 in these provinces in the first five months of 2013 from 310 in the same period of last year. The number of new jobs has increased from 10,000 to 26,000, and the amount of fixed direct investments has risen fourfold to 8.1 billion Turkish Liras," Turkish Economy Minister Zafer ?alayan said in the southeastern province of Diyarbak1r, the symbolic center of the sixth region, yesterday.

    The Economy Ministry has picked Diyarbak1r to announce the first annual economic results of the new system. Provinces rank in terms of social and economic development and fall under six groups in terms of incentive priority. The provinces in the sixth group, mostly consisting of poorer eastern and southeastern provinces, receive the most investment support.

    [07] Turkey and the US cooperate to deliver US weapons to the FSA

    Under the title "Turkey, US cooperate on aid to Syrian rebels", Serkan Demirta, writing in Turkish daily Hurriyet Daily News (online, 21.06.13), reports, inter alia, the following:

    "Turkey and the United States have intensified political and military dialogue for strategic planning to smoothly deliver U.S. weapons to the Free Syria Army (FSA), following Washington's decision to supply military assistance to the Syrian rebels, the H?rriyet Daily News has learned.

    On the political level, Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutolu and Secretary of State John Kerry exchanged two phone calls, one on Saturday and the other late Wednesday, to discuss recent developments in Syria on the eve of a crucial core group meeting of the Friends of the Syrian People on Saturday in Doha. Kerry and Davutolu are also expected to hold a t?te-?-t?te meeting in Doha, in their first encounter since relations between the two allies were strained over the Gezi Park protests.

    On the military-intelligence level, technical experts from the two countries are in intense talks to explore the best ways for the delivery of American weaponry to the FSA. Some representatives of the rebels have also been present in these meetings.

    One of the most likely potential routes for the transportation of this weaponry into Syria is through Turkey, which has a long border with its southern neighbour, diplomatic sources said. Syria's northern parts are under the FSA's control and Turkey has stood as the best logistical centre for the Syrian opposition since the turmoil broke in the country in 2011.

    The Kerry-Davutolu phone conversation late Wednesday mainly addressed developments in Syria, following Washington's policy change regarding arms supplies to the FSA.

    No-fly zone on the agenda of Doha

     After this change of policy, they sure want to be in close coordination with us,' a Turkish Foreign Ministry official told the HDN. 'The change in the U.S. position has impacts on the ground and at the political level. Just after Washington declared this change in their policy, 73 senior Syrian army officials -including some four-star generals - defected to Turkey,' the official said. (?)

    'We will discuss everything, including the implementation of a no-fly zone over Syria,' Foreign Minister Davutolu said in an interview with private broadcaster TGRT late on Wednesday. The use of chemical weapons, which has been proven by the Turkish and U.S. governments, will also be discussed, while participant countries will explore how to swiftly provide aid to the opposition groups. (?)"

According to information acquired from Siber's office, the Ambassador wished Siber success in her new duties.

The chairman of the chamber, Gunay Cerkez said during the meeting that a just solution to the Cyprus problem is needed and argued that the Turkish Cypriots are determined on this issue. "We cannot wait any more for a solution", he claimed and alleged that the so-called embargoes implemented on the Turkish Cypriots should end.

    Under the title "They turn a blind eye to human trafficking", Turkish Cypriot daily Kibris newspaper (21.06.13) writes about the "2013 Human trafficking Report", prepared by the US State Department and writes that the report includes strong criticism against the breakaway regime and its "government" regarding the issue.

    [11] Political tension in occupied Cyprus increases; Kucuk attacks Eroglu; Quarrels for the candidacies continue

    Turkish Cypriot daily Halkin Sesi newspaper (21.06.13) reports that hard quarrels were experienced yesterday at the "assembly" of the breakaway regime in the occupied area of the Republic of Cyprus during the discussion of the program of the self-styled government. Especially the chairman of the main "opposition" National Unity Party (UBP), Irsen Kucuk "cannoned" the Turkish Cypriot leader Dervis Eroglu.

    Kucuk argued that Sibel Siber's "government" has been established "without seeking the will of the people", by "violating democracy" and "with the support of the president of the republic", as he described Eroglu.

    Kucuk said that in spite of his obligation to act impartially, Eroglu meddled in the internal affairs of the UBP and added: "Eroglu, who supports the current government, lost his temper". Kucuk alleged that Eroglu's effort is for this "government" not to go away, because if it this happens Kucuk will return to the "prime ministry". He claimed: "Who is this president of the republic? A person, who boasts of being a member of the UBP. Let him not say from now on that he is the biggest supporter of the UBP. This is over now".

    Addressing the same meeting, Ozkan Yorgancioglu, leader of the Republican Turkish Party (CTP) noted that "the panic" of Kucuk that he will be defeated could be read in his face and in his eyes. Mehmet Cakici, leader of the Social Democracy Party (TDP), described Kucuk as "a child who lost his lollypop", while Serdar Denktas, chairman of the Democratic Party ? National Forces (DP-UG) said he saw no meddling by Eroglu in his party. He argued that the aim of the participation of the eight "MPs" of the UBP in his party was to prevent the "murdering of democracy" and "stop the invitation for meddling in the internal affairs of a party".

    Furthermore, Halkin Sesi reports also that the "candidates" of the UBP and the TDP were announced yesterday. The paper notes that quarrels took place as regards the order of the "candidates" on the lists. As a result of these quarrels, Ertugrul Hasipoglu withdrew his candidacy with the UBP, and Baris Mamali and Suphi Hudaoglu resigned from their duties in the TDP and withdrew their "candidacies". Moreover, Tahsin Mertekci withdrew his candidacy with the TDP in occupied Morfou because Nazim Beratli, who had been "MP" with the CTP, was placed first in TDP's list.

    Finally, Turkish Cypriot daily Haberdar newspaper (21.06.13) reports that Ejder Aslanbaba will definitely not be a "candidate" with the DP-UG in the "elections". After this was finalized, some rumors said that Aslanbaba accepted not to become a "candidate" because "they paid his debts". In statements after his decision not to become a "candidate", Aslanbaba said he still wanted to run in the "elections" and admitted that he had debts. "I wish they paid my debts and I left this island", he noted half joking half seriously speaking on the issue, reports Haberdar. Aslanbaba said also that he will keep the promise he had given with his colleagues when they started acting together and will vote positively for the "government" during the "vote of confidence".

    [12] Reactions to Erk's decision not to sponsor an activity for celebrating Turkish 1974 invasion of Cyprus

    Turkish Cypriot daily Haberdar newspaper (21.06.13) reports that a decision taken by the self-styled foreign minister, Kutlay Erk to reduce the number of the people invited for the celebrations of the 20th of July on the anniversary of the Turkish invasion of Cyprus and not to sponsor an activity named "Dawn guard" within the same framework has caused great reactions. In a written statement, Erk said this decision has been taken within the framework of austerity measures aiming at reducing their "budget". He expressed his sorrow because they cannot sponsor the activity "due to the budget left as inheritance" to them by the former "government" and wished for the organizers of the "dawn guard" to find some other sponsors and materialize their activity.

    On the other hand, the organizers of the above-mentioned activity issued a statement criticizing Erk for giving an order in the direction of not including their activity in the celebrations for 20 July and added that they do not consider the "foreign ministry" as their sponsor and therefore they asked nothing for the activity to be held this year. They argued that including their activity in the program of the celebrations is an important message to the world and added that they will be at the beach in the night of the 19th of July until the morning of the 20th of July this year as well in order to show "the love and gratitude of the Turkish Cypriot people" to Turkey. [Translator's note: the activity is held at the beach in occupied Keryneia where the Turkish occupation army invaded Cyprus in 1974]

    Meanwhile, addressing the "assembly" yesterday, Serdar Denktas, chairman of the Democratic Party ? National Forces (DP-UG) said that they oppose to the decision of the "ministry" not to support the above-mentioned activity and added that the Denktas Foundation will offer every contribution for the materialization of the "dawn guard".

    Haberdar's editor-in-chief, Rasih Resat comments on the issue in his daily column today (21.06.13) and describes the decision of Erk as a "blunder", arguing that the interim "government" makes such blunders every day. He claimed that Serdar Denktas tried to correct the situation during his speech at the "assembly", but "it would not be wrong to say that he was not very successful". Citing some information, Resat reports that self-styled prime minster Sibel Siber called the organizers of the activity and apologized expressing the support of her "government".

    [13] Former Turkish Minister explains how easily he was granted the "TRNC citizenship"

    Turkish Cypriot daily Halkin Sesi newspaper (21.06.13) reports that Ertugrul Gunay, MP with the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) in Turkey and former Tourism Minister of Turkey with AKP, who was one of the persons who was granted the "TRNC" citizenship, explained how easily he was offered the "citizenship".

    Gunay, who made statements to Ankara Anatolia, denied reports that the new "prime minister" of the breakaway regime Sibel Siber canceled his "citizenship" and said that during his last visit to occupied Cyprus someone asked to take a copy of his Turkish identity card and then, upon its return he gave him "on foot" as he noted, the "TRNC citizenship".

    Turkish Cypriot daily Kibris newspaper (21.06.13) reports that the United Cyprus Party (BKP) will hold its 3rd Regular Congress on Sunday 23 June, 2013. The party, which is currently administrated by a general secretary, will amend its regulations and adopt the "presidential system".

    The general secretary of the party, Izzet Izcan told illegal TAK news agency that they have decided to run in the "elections" as BKP-Communal Existence Forces (BKP- TVG), in cooperation with the Baraka Cultural Centre, the Communist Union and some individuals. He said, however, that they will use only the name of BKP in the "elections", because of some prohibitions that exist in the "law" as regards the "elections".

    Izcan noted that their aim is for their cooperation to continue after the "elections" and to participate "strongly" in the struggle for communal existence following a policy in favor of peace and the labourers.

    Izcan pointed out that there is not much difference between the four parties represented in the "assembly" of the regime and added that with the efforts of BKP an alternative is created.

    Izzet Izcan is the only candidate for the presidency of the party until now.
