...Turkey is late, very late, in a business where first to the market is an essential tenent.

Erdogan has meddled in his neighbours' affairs for years now, yet, they have moved on, and while an empty chair awaits him, still, he insists their affairs are illegal; he imagines a Turkey where the Treaty of Lausanne does not exist, a Cyprus does not exist, (never mind UNCLOS) and where those who lack his vision will cease in their affairs without Turkey's permission.

...indeed tearing the Cypriot People out of any equation has been an effort where Turkey has failed, now decades into it. Despite dividing these dwellers into "Greeks" (read: those not "Turkish"), and "Turks", despite the process of assimilation, illegal settlement, changing the toponyme, economic (and religious) subjugation, even in the occupied part of Cyprus, Cypriots (politically speaking) still represent about half the population. Brave Cyprus indeed, small, so small compared to Turkey's bigness has survived, despite its dysfunctions, to prosper, and, to lead.

...indeed, without a Cyprus, Turkey rules this sea.

...not "Greek" or "Turkish", very different to them, and, Cypriot; another example.

"When people vote, they should be neither Greek (GC ) nor Turk (TC) ...... but individuals ...... above all else, the right of the individual should be respected, no matter what community they finally affiliate with (for day to day existence).", OP

True!!!, in my Cyprus so long as you are a Citizen, toward the State you will be identified as an Individual, only.

Voting thricely, each citizens votes for a Turkish Cypriot representative, a Greek Cypriot representative, as well as an Independent representative.

"So you propose to have us TCs scattered all over the island in enclaves surrounded on all sides by GCs?", eric d.

not true, having enclaves scattered over the whole island implies that Greek Cypriots can return as communities in the north without destroying the fabric of the society which will surround them. Turkish Cypriots will have the opportunity to development land for their society's prosperity island wide as well with their enclaves in the south.

most importantly, I think is the recognition we can give to the displaced reciprocally by this change to our political-geography, and homes can be offered to the Settlers and those that will be displaced instead of houses.

"Will not the 'traitors' include a large section of the GC population?", deniz
"just EU members resident in Cyprus .... using their one vote to have a say!", OP

Both true, although our founding is a commitment to change, and people as Cypriots, and as Tc's and as Gc's are to be accommodated.

"Cypriotism", just sticking to the subject.

... "others" may forget that to survive we must defend each other as Cypriots, Cypriots don't.

..."they" will not divide Cyprus, it is the "Turks", of Cyprus, who will feel betrayed, what is Cypriot is Cypriot; indeed; to divide Cyprus, is to set the template for the division of Turkey.

...yes, indeed, prepare for the Communal Chamber to open, prepare the Legislature with its empty seats filled, prepare for the minority rights of Constituents, so that as Constituents they may have their special needs provided. Is this the plan 'b' Akinci will provide the electorate, those Cypriot, who voted for him?

...indeed, it takes the Flag of Cyprus flying highest behind Mr. Akinci, for there to be any respect or recognition for him, at this point, should he dare to say, that while he is Turkish, he is no "Turk", and, he is Cypriot.

...indeed, Cyprus must reform itself, Cypriots want, as Individuals, the Freedom to live their lives based on merit, without further distinction or discrimination, based on Universal Principals and a Rule of Law they defend and seek to better united.

...indeed, being Bicommunal, as Persons, they seek the Liberty to express themselves as such. And as such, it is possible, if there is unanimity as Constituencies (something within the Communal Chamber), which the Legislature may consider in their work, Cyprus' Constitutional reform.

...not a terrific article by Mr. Alper's, given his capacity to stimulate debate, however his learned opinion opens the door to a return to the Constitution, for a solution, as he subtly suggests.
