The government in the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC), headed by the National Union Party (NUP) leader Irsen Kucuk failed on Wednesday to secure a vote of confidence at the national assembly.
Turkish Cypriot Parliament Speaker Hasan Bozer said a vote of no-confidence required the resignation of Prime Minister Kucuk, as the parliament accepted the censure motion by 27 votes out of 50.
The NUP government, on duty since May 17, 2010, lost its majority as 8 parliamentarians resigned from the party on May 26.
The Turkish Cypriot parliament called for early elections on July 28.
