Presentation of the CTP

The Republican Turkish Party (website) is a left party that was founded on 27 December 1970. After the partition of Cyprus in 1974, it continued its political life in Northern Cyprus. The party is known to have alternative opinions to president Denktaş on the Cyprus issue. In the elections of December 2003, the CTP had the largest portion of the votes and participated to a coalition government founded with the Democrat Party. As of January 2004, its leader Mehmet Ali Talat is the Prime Minister of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus.

Flag of the CTP

The flag of the CTP has 2:3 proportions, a white circular background for the emblem and a green background and figures. I have seen similar flags in demonstrations before the elections.
The emblem of the party includes two green grain ears on the sides and letters "CTP" and the foundation year of the party in the center. There are also alternative versions where colors (green and white) are reversed.
