Your system is simple majority rule and in simple majority rule there is hardly a need for consensus. Consensus need only arises when people start realizing that they have to take the other side into serious consideration, like what I have proposed.

turkcyp, I must say I admire your opinion. however you are thinking very ideally. in what democratic country in the world do you ever see a consensus. the only gov't that I know to have ever worked that way was the Native American Iriquois League, currently New York State.

in addition to that my plan will lead to a more subtle road towards acceptance of a single Cypriot identity one day (meaning I am Cypriot and then GC/TC, not of course elimination of each community's heritage)

although a majority will be required, for this majority to pass each individual who is trying to pass the law will have to lobby to ALL senators involved whether they are GC or TC. Not to each community separately.

Either way though I would find your plan acceptable but this would also depend on the remainder of the negotiations.
