Turkish Cypriot Sociologist Kudret Akay published the results of the survey he conducted titled as “Political Tendincies January 2015”.

The survey aims to determine the political tendencies of people residing in north Cyprus. The survey was also designed to find out the views of north Cyprus public on identity, democracy, equality of opportunity, liberties, nationalism, religious faith. In the framework of the survey 720 individuals from 720 households were interviewed.

According to the results the majority of the interviewees said that democracy and equality of opportunity were “nonexistent” in the country. On the other hand the majority of the internees identified themselves as rightwing with strong nationalistic and religious faith.

Speaking on the survey results Akay said that the results of the January survey were parallel with the results from the December 2014 survey. According to Akay majority of the population residing in north Cyprus identified themselves as “nationalists” who, says Akay, also claimed their state but demand reforms and democracy.
