Belgium: Former MP running for Turkish parliament


Via HLN and Wikipedia:

Cemal Cavdarli, former Belgian MP, wants to represent the Turkish AKP, according to Tanguy Veys of Vlaams Belang. Cavdarli is fourth on the party's list for the Eski┼čehir Province for the upcoming elections. In the last elections the AKP won three of the six seats in the province.

Cavdarli, imam of the Great Mosque of Ghent, represented the SP.A (Socialists) in the Belgian parliament between 2003 and 2007. In the 2010 federal elections he was an election candidate for the conservative Lijst Dedecker (LDD) in East Flanders, but was not elected.

The LDD say Cavdarli is not a member of the party and never was, and shouldn't count on being a candidate for the party in the future.
