I won't be surprised if Talat chooses Denktas Jr. over Akinci. He did it last time, I don't see why he wouldn't do it again.

I would choose Denktas Jr. party as well. IN two months there will be presidential elections, and if Talat chooses to run for president, this means 26 immedialtely becomes not enough again, because if he gets choosen he looses his MP.

Plus who would want to be a partner with a loosing team. It is obvious that Akinci's ideas are not very popular in Cyprus.

From left to right of continuum, if you put these parties, left being the most solution orineted (solution is very important for them and is ready to give a higher price for it) to right being most nationalistic oriented (solution is not very important for them and is not ready to give a high price for it), we can rank them as:

Left<------------------------------------------------------>Right
YKP------BDH---------CTP-----------DP---------UBP------MAP

Sowe can say that TC society is right in the middle. They like to get the solution but not at any price......

If Talat chooses Denktas again then it will send the wrong signals to the GC's. I can't speak for TC's in who they choose but at the end of the day, if you have two groups with fundamentally opposing views as to the nature of the solution then you cannot hope to have an effective negotiating team.

But anyway, does this really matter when it is Turkey that pulls the strings?

What are these ideas and how do they differ from Talat's?

I don't think that Akinci and Talat have different ideologies. They basically have very similar ideas when it comes to the Cyprus problem but I think the biggest difference between the two is that Talat is the president of a well-founded party with rich history whereas Akinci's party (TKP/BDH) is not so well-founded and recently divided into many sections.

I'm disappointed that Akinci did not get more votes. I think he's a sincere politician and he's more careful in regard to GC needs/desires compared to Talat. I think GCs find Akinci more agreeable than Talat. I don't like Talat's "Let's punish GCs by lifting embargoes in the north so they can run back to the negotiation table and accept whatever we say" approach.

Anyway, I guess it's too late to talk about these now.
