...Malas had the opportunity to demonstrate his connections to Cypriots. There was nothing in what his campaign was that Anastasiades could not do. More precisely, he did not demonstrate his support from the working class in any tangible way; if he had, his support from Cypriots in the occupied territories would have played a much greater role in the political debate.

...it is up to Akinci, in effect; Malas or Anastasiades, he will have a welcoming partner, if Erdogan pushes him too far, if he has in that moment enough support to display a character Cypriots can support rather than a "Turkish" mouthpiece.

...we can remain hopeful the voters have already spoken. What is natural has not been displaced by a situation where, Denktash and Pap enjoy each others' company as adversaries; with what they represent philosophically speaking, not as Cypriots on the same side. What is "Turkish" and what is "Greek" have lost control of the Agenda, it can now be Cypriot, to have a Cypriot way where somewhere Turkish may be spoken first, where Greek is spoken first, and where Arabs and Latins (dare i say even the English) find the same kind of connection to living relics and a way of living: while as Cypriots they defend each other being Cypriots as Cypriots.

...indeed, the time is ripe to solve the Problem, in Cyprus, but by the Statesmanship our leaders show, as Cypriots, a solution to the Problem in Turkey, and in the region as a whole is possible, by defining more clearly the words Nation and State, or Person and Individual, or Liberty and Freedom; the notion of a BBF.

eshi o theos, re B25; indeed.

..he is the President, whoever he will be tomorrow, if it is Cyprus and Cypriots he represents, i will be careful in my efforts to be helpful.

It's hard to tell who's the biggest traitor... :?

However Nikaros is a better choice than Malas because of AKEL. :wink:

I think it was the right choice in the end.

" Im certain that Anastasiades will be serving a second term. I predict a clear lead over Malas, attaining over 55% of the vote.[/quote]

My congratulations to Nikos Anastasiades and I do hope his second term will somehow produce the much desired solution to our problem. It has been a thouroughly democratic election that we should all be proud of.
Lets hope that all parties come together for the benefit of our beloved Cyprus.
By the way, I was spot on with my prediction !!!

In Larnaka and Paphos the result was only 53-47. Paphos went for Papadopoulos in first round.
