Government and opposition agreed on election date but no consensus on election bans
Parliament Speaker Önder Sennaroğlu announced that the government and the opposition parties made an agreement on the date of early elections, but there was no agreement on election bans.
Chairman of the Assembly of the Republic Önder Sennaroğlu stated that the government and the opposition agreed on the date of the early elections, but they could not reach a consensus on the starting date of the election bans.
Sennaroğlu noted that today's session of the Assembly of the Republic was not held because a consensus could not be reached, and the meeting was postponed to 10:00 tomorrow with the same agenda.
Parliament Speaker Sennaroğlu informed the Turkish Agency Cyprus (TAK) about the process taking place today.
Sennaroğlu said that Prime Minister and Chairman of the National Unity Party (UBP) Ersan Saner suggested February 6, 2022 as the early election date to the opposition, and that the proposal was discussed and approved.
Sennaroğlu said that the issue of election bans was discussed later, and that the election bans should start on December 6, two months before the election date, and that the opposition offered a different proposal on this issue.
Expressing that the opposition suggested that the election bans begin on the day the election date was determined, Sennaroğlu said that this proposal was not welcomed by Prime Minister Saner, so an agreement could not be reached.
