Where do they all fit?

How can we solve it? (keep it civilized)

I am bringing this thread to the top so Lordo can see the maps, and explain to us where the ONE MILLION settlers fit in the north and how come the lights at night along with the built up areas are larger in the south with its 800 000 than the north with its reputed ONE MILLION people.

Judging from the evidence it is more likely that the north has 300 000 people, unless the remaining 700 000 have learned to live without electricity in tents or underground caves.

Electricity use is like wealth and coughing, it cannot be hidden, and it takes people to use it.

The point is that the building infrastucture and the electricity use do not corroborate the claim of ONE MILLION people in the north.

As for the tourist population, it is the calculated total for whole YEAR, they are not all there at once.

The population claim is simply not corroborated by any scientific map, only by claims and suspect census. The Urban Heat Island imaging, the built up area maps, the night time maps, all point to a much larger human presence in the south. The south is said to have 800 000 people. If the north had ONE MILLION it would light up the night map like a Chrismas tree.

Nikitas, yes the numbers are suspect, just look at this report:

TRNC residents who were eligible to vote in the Turkish presidential elections showed a very low turnout for yesterday’s elections. Only 11% of eligible Turkish voters residing in North Cyprus cast their votes, ‘Kibris Postasi’ reports.

According to the latest results from the 33 ballot boxes 54.8% of 10843 valid votes was for Erdoğan, 37.1 % İhsanoğlu and 8.1 % Selahattin Demirtaş.

Out of 92,171 eligible voters in North Cyprus only 10,941 of them went to the polling stations.

This would indicate that the 1m settlers is indeed a myth. I am guessing with 92,171 add for any children and the figure is more like 200k max or lexx.

I wonder what Lordo has to say now????

Only 200,000 that's not a bad thing... Propaganda by the Gc government and politicians is what inflates the numbers...

Oceanside,

It is not a matter of bad or good. It is just that the objective evidence that is available in the form of maps, especially tech maps that register heat, lights etc, seem to contradict the touted figures.

And another thing. If there were more people in the north than the south they would not need to make efforts to attract tourists from the south to get them to the casinos.

1 or 1 million doesnt really concern you, we are divided and the population in the TRNC is our business not yours.

But who states these numbers?..I've heard a couple of Gc politicians state that there are over 500,000

...i read today that about 4300 people are in the occupied north at any given time.

...i am guessing that the population is even less than 180,000.
