I based my prediction on analyses by Şener Elçil and Niyazi Kızılyürek on CYBC's Biz/Emeis programme in the last couple of weeks, actually, so kudos to them rather than me.

I think the result is significant. There is no suggestion that Ankara interfered in the election itself, and this essentially boiled down to a referendum between the federation that Akıncı supports and the confederation that Eroğlu supports, and the majority of the population of the de-facto TRNC supported the former, including a portion of those who have moved there from Turkey and acquired citizenship. This rekindles hope that a federal solution may be possible.

I also felt that the voters' rejection of the CTP candidate as Eroğlu's natural opponent was telling. Does this mean that they do not like the way this party, with its left of centre and secular position, has been so ready to align itself with the ruling AKP party in Turkey?

Of course Ankara is still capable of derailing the process, but the fact is that a federal solution is at least possible with Akıncı as interlocutor, whereas it was inconceivable with Eroğlu. The ball is now in Anastasiades' court.

indeed, if Akinci places the Flag of Cyprus directly behind him when he speaks, it will be a real challenge, if the Republic is made up of "Greeks", to ignore him.

Akıncı has already caused a stir in Turkey with his comments on live television there.

As summarised by the Cumhuriyet newspaper:

Canlı yayında Mustafa Akıncı'dan Ankara'yı hareketlendirecek sözler

KKTC'nin bütünüyle Ankara'da yönetildiğini, Merkez Bankası'ndan Polis teşkilatına kadar bütün kurumların Ankara'dan yapılan atamalar ile idare ediliğini vurgulayan Akıncı "Böyle bir devlet yapılanması olabilir mi?" diye sordu. Akıncı, Kıbrıs Türkleri'nin kendi kendini yöneten, kendi evinin efendisi olan bir idari yapı talep ettiğini söyledi.

[my translation]

Words from Mustafa Akıncı on a live broadcast that will cause a buzz in Ankara

Akıncı, stressing that the TRNC was governed in its entirety in Ankara and all entities from the Central Bank to the Police organisation were administered through appointments made from Ankara, asked, “Can there be such a state structure?” Akıncı said that Turkish Cypriots were demanding an administrative structure which governs itself and is the master of its own home.

Here is a clue that this guy will find himself between a rock and a hard place, between Turkey and the RoC.

I Just see lots of hysteria about him at the moment because he said he wants a just settlement while holding some olive branches. :lol:

So what happened to Sheikh Nazim already? All I said was "I am not having a laugh with an Israeli communist and it's over", and he kopped it, said he was "tired" or something... I may have had a little help from my Nigerian neighbour in composing that shot that I didn't ask for... but someone's got to pay Turkey's debts... I have said this many times, and even Sheikh Nazim himself acknowledged it by visiting the Archbishop...
