Özgür Ferhat: I owe this unique victory to my people
The most important reason why SYRIZA came first in the Rhodope province was that the members of the Turkish minority strongly supported Özgür Ferhat, one of the parliamentary candidates, and elected him with thousands of votes.
MP Ferhat wrote his own history with the strong support he received from the public.
Ferhat stated the following in his statement:
"I owe it to you, my esteemed people that I signed a historical record with 12.000+ votes as a result of the interest and support of our nation in the 21 May elections and was elected as a Member of Parliament for the Rhodope Province.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who believed in me, trusted me, created an overwhelming power with their votes and helped us start a new political era in our region. This great success is your work, you are the architect of this unique victory. THANKS."
