Istanbu – Radikal – Oyku Ozen, a transsexual from the northwestern province of Bursa, has filed to be a candidate for deputy from the main opposition Republican People’s Party, or CHP.
The CHP’s candidate-to-be Ozen said she has been following political agenda for years and has a heart in politics. “That’s why I want to be a candidate. But the Supreme Election Board, or YSK, has increased the price of application for independent candidates to 7,000 Turkish Liras. This is something negative,” Ozen said.
