Turkish Republic of Cyprus News | TRNC Government Instigates Name Change

Turkish Republic of Cyprus News – well, they finally went and done it; they changed the name from the Turkish Republic of North Cyprus to the Turkish Republic of Cyprus. The decision was taken by the Cabinet of Ministers on May 23. This means that “the Cypriot Turk” will be written in the column “origin” of citizens’ identity cards.

No explanation has been given as to why this expensive change was needed at a time when the government is finding it difficult to pay wages; over 70 days late in some instances.
