Hizzoner embraces his only Moldovan constituent.
Amasra Mayor Emin Timur's intimate poses with his Moldovan
girlfriend have become the talk of the town. The Mayor and Roza
İarcenka have been seen kissing in public and Timur even took
İarcenka to Istanbul in his official vehicle. As the scandal has
been exposed in local media the people of the district are up in arms.
Commenting to Sözcü on the situation, Mayor Timur stated that
"I'm single. She's my fiancé. We'll be married at the end of the
summer. She's not Russian, as people have been saying. She's
Moldovan." It turns out, however, that 'bachelor' Timur has been
married to Gül Timur for 25 years and they have two children. (!)
Gül hanım's brother Fırat Eyidoğan commented that "the mayor
isn't telling the truth. He's my brother-in-law, married to my
sister Gül. They're getting a divorce but it's not final yet so he
can't call himself a bachelor."
Mayor Timur confirmed that he took his 'fiancé' to Istanbul in
his official car but claimed that "I'm getting medical treatment
there." The Mayor, who is a member of the ruling AKP party,
lamented that "it's a shame that they're getting into my personal
life so deeply."
