    [03] Turkish &#8211;Cypriots demonstrate against Denktash

    In an interview with a radio station of the pseudostate in Cyprus yesterday, the Turkish-Cypriot representative Rauf Denktash asked for a meeting with the President of the Cyprus Republic Glafkos Klerides, at the same time when reactions against Mr Denktash are escalating in the occupied territories.

    Yesterday, more than six thousand Turkish-Cypriots demonstrated in the Turkish part of the occupied Famagusta against Mr Denktash' s policy, while similar protests will take place next Tuesday in occupied Morfu, while more protests are scheduled in Nicosia on December 29.

    At the same time, the Justice and Development party tabled a new amendment at Parliament, so as to by-pass President Sezer's veto that forbids Mr Erdogan to become Prime Minister. Mr Sezer can veto for a second time, however, he can ask for the cancellation of the reforms from the Constitutional Court.
