“VOTING POLLS TO BE HELD IN NORTH LONDON”
The Kırkısraklılar Association has prepared a statement which they will propose to the Consul in relation to the location of the poll stations to be moved to north London. In the statement made by the association, it has been asserted:
“Despite a majority of our citizens living in north London, with the initiative of Consul and the YSK voting has occurred at Kensington which is regarded as a far location for the voters.
Due to this inconvenience, thousands of citizens which are old, sick or disabled were unable to exercise their most democratic right.
As a result of this, we will propose a statement to the Consul on Friday, 4 May with numerous organisations in relation to the voting to be held in north London.”
