Looks almost identical to the situation in Cyprus in the 80s, 90, 20s, and 21s!

One thing you can rely on is the Cypriot’s steadfast support of the same football team and the same political party for eternity no matter what...


Which is why you have a bunch of idiots!

At least in the USA they are shaking things up a bit even though its Trump! :lol:




We don't have clowns like Trump, Berlusconi or Tsipras.


Oh yes you do! :wink:

In fact, your idiots take the tourta with a cherry on top! :lol:

In Cyprus, support for a political party and/or a football team is mysteriously unified and passed down the generations through the father.

The average young Cypriot doesn’t have a political opinion other than what his dad says. He in turn will learn the “right” political rhetoric to pass onto his kids and grandkids.

It’s like a family heirloom only it’s not tangible but “in spirit”. :lol:

Normally a political party like AKEL would NOT have survived its blunders in most other countries, but here in Cyprus it still retains exactly the same level of support like it had in the last four decades and continues unabated! :lol:

There might be a bit of that but current generations and attitudes are changing.

AKEL supporters are famous for low IQ. The average AKEL punter is not as well educated like the other parties who send their kids to UK and America! :lol:

...as absurd as it may sound, would it be possible, given the legislation at present, for Cypriots, Turkish or Greek, to field candidates, and campaign in the occupied north (if the occupation regime was not against it)?

...could the same Party campaign across the whole island?

Voter turnout at 29.7 per cent at midday.

With a total voter turnout of 29.7 per cent, polls closed in Cyprus and Greece for one hour at midday on Sunday during the parliamentary elections.
At midday, Chief Returning Officer Constantinos Nicolaides gave details of turnout in each district with comparisons with the 2011 elections. The total figure for turnout was 39.5 per cent at the same time in 2011.

Results here: http://wtv.elections.moi.gov.cy/ Seems like lots of small parties will enter the parliament, including possibly ELAM

The first exit polls in Sunday’s parliamentary elections indicated that ruling DISY was expected to poll anything between 29.5 and 32.5 percent of the vote, followed by Communist AKEL with 26.5 and 29.5 percent, the exit poll by CyBC said. It was based on 70 percent of exit poll respondents being counted.

In addition the poll gave DIKO around 12 per cent, EDEK 5 per cent, Solidarity 5 per cent, Greens 4 per cent, Citizens Alliance 5 per cent and ultra-right ELAM 3-4 per cent. If they reach the max, this would give them one seat in the House.Since the last election the threshold to secure a seat has been raised from 1.8 per cent to 3.6 per cent.

Seems like its going to be marginal for ELAM. At 93.2% they have 3.74%, but their numbers will go down. Maybe they will not be over 3.6% in the end.

What GR is referring to is the 2nd one on the list.
