Another Armenian woman is nominated mayoral candidate in the run-up to the forthcoming local government elections in Turkey.  

Newly founded Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP) nominated Lora Baytar Capar as mayoral candidate for Samandag Municipality in Hatay Province. 

In 2013, Lora Baytar married Cem Capar, who is chairman of the board of the Armenian church in Vakif (Vakifli), which is Turkey’s sole Armenian-populated village.  

As reported earlier, HDP had nominated Armenian woman Nivart Bakircioglu as mayoral candidate for Bakirkoy Municipality of Metropolitan Istanbul.
