BY Candidate Keleşzade: Those who say that the TRNC should be kept alive are producing policies that make the country unlivable
Mustafa Keleşzade, Secretary of Foreign Relations on the Road to Independence and candidate for parliament, noted that they participated in the election to show the existence of workers.
Mustafa Keleşzade, Secretary of Foreign Relations on the Bağımsızlık Yolu (Road to Independence) and Nicosia parliamentary candidate, made evaluations in the program he attended.
Noting that they have been on the streets since 2014, Keleşzade said that they struggled to raise the voice of the workers, they joined a party in 2018, and they participated in these elections to show the existence of the working people.
Noting that they have been working on the Opposition Program since 2019 and that they have identified 11 topics in the workshop organized with the participation of the members, Mustafa Keleşzade stated that they have created a program that touches the problems.
"WE ARE SATISFIED THAT OUR SPEECHES ARE USED BY OTHER PARTIES"
Keleşzade continued as follows:
“We are not disturbed by the use of our rhetoric by other parties, on the contrary, we are pleased. When we look at today, it is very pleasing that different political parties voiced their demands for a Wealth Tax, 'forbidden to work without a union', 'the minimum wage should be indexed to the lowest public salary'. Our aim is for political parties to move further to the left.”
Arguing that public health services are not provided in the country, Keleşzade also used the following statements:
“Our insides do not allow such a project to be made with the money of the people of Turkey. The situation in the north of Cyprus does not allow for this either. We are not only at the point of criticizing it. We think that the economic protocols made with Turkey do not benefit the Turkish Cypriot people due to their general structure, on the contrary, they are harmful. The economic policy that the IMF applied to Turkey at the time is now the economic policy of Turkey to the north of Cyprus.”
“Those who constantly say that the TRNC should be kept alive are producing policies that make this country unlivable. This is the contradiction of the Turkish Cypriot right," said Mustafa Keleşzade, adding that he is in favor of making a modern Citizenship Law as the Road to Independence.
“The reason for the Independence Road to enter the elections is because it predicts that there will be no change with the regime parties, it knows this. Keleşzade said:
“What we will say to people who are considering boycotting the election is this; Every vote they give for the Independence Road can be written in the same household as the boycott. We have an opposition strategy, not a government, and if we can raise our voice in Parliament, we will combine it with the street."
