The Turkish Embassy announced on Sunday that the deadline for Turkish voters from earthquake stricken areas who are currently residing in the TRNC to register their new addresses so that they may be able to vote in the May 14 elections ends on Friday March 17.

Voters will be able to vote in the areas where they have registered their addresses.

The Turkish Ambassador to Lefkoşa Metin Feyzioğlu also said that voters could register their new addresses at centres where food and clothing is being distributed to earthquake victims.
