What's missing? For instance:
1. An impeachment process against a president and Supreme Court justices
2. Complete reform of Cyprus judicial system. Lawyers/Judges should be held accountable through swift reprimand or dismissal.
3. Streamline the process for any violations of civil rights/human rights, political rights, economic and property rights unhindered and timely due process is guaranteed.
4. Form independent judicial reviews of government legislation, concerning civil rights.
5..Retrain judges, lawyers,legislators on the importance of these reforms...

These types of judicial reforms could also be an asset for Cyprus when negotiating with the Turkish Cypriots, if applied and guaranteed, these reforms would give the Turkish Cypriots the "equality" that they have always been asking for. Some of the oversight committees in matters of civil liberties could be comprised of GC and TC...

Feel free to add anything that comes to mind...

I stand corrected, i did miss the part where there will be changes in the method for ousting a President and the judicial reforms. The judicial reforms should also reflect the changing society of Cyprus. Civil liberties for minorities and all of Cyprus' citizens should also be emphasized as I stated above, in helping to make Cyprus a progressive modern nation. Anastasiades could make the reach to the point of tying all these reforms with the Cyprus problem including civil liberties reform and due process, it could be a good way to get the TC's attention. It sounds like a good beginning, though.

Reforms in civil liberties, that could make Cyprus an example for Europe and the region. To reiterate these particular reforms could be the answer to the Tc demand for political equality.

Political equality regulations are already in place. One man one vote democracy. What more do they want?

Two different concepts GreekIslandGirl. Political equality basically means that both ethnic groups have an equal say in governing. Civil liberties equality means that, civil rights, are guaranteed. A country needs an updated legal/ justice system that's modern and has the ability to update itself easily, so that it can swiftly and blindly delegate due process to its citizens.

There are a lot more than 2 ethnic groups on the island, so self-government for all?

there is a big difference between the meaning of the word Freedom, when compared to Liberty.

a Unitary State can be Bicommunal if at another level of Government there is representation of Individuals, as Persons.

it is not complicated, and since the very beginning, the debate being so easily framed by its "Greekness"/"Turkishness", Cyprus as a Sovereign State, has been left dysfunctional. Cyprus needs the representation of Greeks as a Constituency, so that other Cypriot Constituencies can have an equal chance to sustain their distinctiveness and identity. Cypriots need a Republic to demonstrate their commitment to Universal Principals, as Human Beings (Individuals), Cypriots want to be Nationalists (Persons), although in Cyprus (having a very rich Cultural Heritance) many Nations nurture living relics.

...indeed, one has to be proud to stand for such an ideal. Cypriot is what other, if it is not, by hatred, to be torn in two.

claret, would you kindly comment on my manifesto thingy, it may be a great help to vp, who has had great difficulty understanding the (what i thought were simple) concepts in it...
...perhaps you can give your yea or nea point form for vp's benefit, as well. as you can see (the two sides) "we" are not that far apart.

...i might add Kikapu has a plan, Bicommunal, as well, which is interesting reading.

If he can pull all that off with success, then he would go down as the RoC's best President ever.

It would also mean that this crisis has been good in a way, because it may pave the way for major change and improvements from the grass roots all the way up to the halls of power.

All I can say is good luck! It is all possible, and at the end of the day, the little battler and youth need these reforms to take place. It is the only way.
