Where do they all fit?

How can we solve it? (keep it civilized)

It makes a difference GR when they are touting those figures as a way to scare us, to convince us that time is running out and if we do not agree to the next Avnan plan then there will be two million colonists in the north.

The sources for this bullshit are often official RoC, mainstream GC and Greek media, and some posts in here.

It also makes a difference when the final territorial deal will be based on such bullshit population figures.

Let your mind think a little further than the border of Choirokitia.

...where do they all fit, i tell you, do the math, in two hundred years, if the population grows by 1.5 to 4%, what is left of "Greekness" even if it is the overwhelming population today, people who are not "Greek" will have to want to learn Greek, if the way of life it offers is to survive.

...and the future? as though Cyprus will remain mostly "Greek" in a mobile world where Cyprus returns to its distinctive place in the world as a cross-road for three Continents, speaking any number of languages, beside, Greek (and/or Turkish, and/or other Cypriot Constituencies, if there are to be any), what do you say, GR?

Sounds like Lordos’ threats… :lol:

At the moment they haven't got an economy or infrastructure to sustain 1 million residents... not even half.

It also makes a difference when the final territorial deal will be based on such bullshit population figures.

Do you really expect that the RoC will ever sign anything with them? I don't... :)

To support such a notion one would need to come up with a serious incentive for the RoC.

Just to expand a little...

The ONE thing that can serve as an incentive for the RoC (the return of her rightful territory) is 100% in direct conflict with the other party’s very existence, and this is called a “mutually exclusive” event… that is two events that can never occur at the same time.

I therefore don’t ever expect any agreements to come to pass and am certain that only geopolitical shifts and balances will determine the outcome... sooner or later.

"1 million was last year. our new pasha says in 5 years there will be 5 million."

Obviously troglodytes from Cappadocia. Living where the light don't shine.

Erdo arrives tomorrow, it will be interesting to see how many of the "one million" in the north will fit in a small town square to cheer him.

And naturally we are ancious to hear how he will refer to the Greek Cypriots this time. Last time it was simply "they". f

Northern Cyprus demographics: who is voting?

http://in-cyprus.com/northern-cyprus-de ... is-voting/

Meanwhile, one can infer that indigenous Turks should be around 128,000 people or 44.9% of the total. We get to this number by taking the total population of 286,257, minus 21,409 born in the UK and places other than Turkey, minus the 136,362 ‘TRNC only’ citizens.

Indigenous Turkish Cypriots therefore slightly outnumber indigenous Turks by around 8,000. But when it comes to voters, Turkish Cypriots are a much larger proportion of the voting public, at around 70%.


...a very interesting (and detailed) breakdown of the demographics.
