The parliament failed to convene due to quorum ınsufficiency
The General Assembly of the TRNC Parliament was unable to hold its extraordinary session as the required quorum was not met, primarily due to the absence of government-affiliated members of parliament.
The General Assembly of the Republic's Parliament could not hold its extraordinary session due to quorum insufficiency.
The attempt to convene the General Assembly took place at 11:45 am, led by the Parliament Speaker, Zorlu Töre. After the roll call, Speaker Töre announced that the meeting was adjourned as the required minimum number of attendees was not reached, in accordance with Article 60 of the internal regulations.
Since the General Assembly could not convene due to the lack of quorum, the call for the extraordinary session was rendered incomplete. The attendance consisted only of MPs from the Republican Turkish Party (CTP) and independent MPs.
For the Parliament to convene, at least 26 MPs need to be present in the hall.
The request for the extraordinary session, which was made by some members of the CTP and independent MP Jale Refik Rogers from Girne, as well as independent MP Ayşegül Baybars from Gazimağusa, aimed to discuss topics such as long-term agreements with private companies, depletion of public resources, the country's economic deadlock, and the hardships faced by the public.
Having adjourned on June 26, concluding the legislative year and entering a summer recess, the General Assembly of the Parliament will commence the new legislative year on Monday, October 2.
