...indeed, if he stood beside the Flag of Cyprus, to say, I am Cypriot, you are Greek Cypriot, I am Turkish Cypriot too; are you Cypriot?

Would you join him?

...the Flag may play a very important role in these elections.

He is like all his predecessors RW.

Except, he has pissed off the regime in Ankara.

I dont know what more to say to sum up my opinion.

Some g Cypriots might say that that is a positive sign and tell you about a bunch of (probably false) virtues he has. I hear things like, he is a true Cypriot, he is genuine and a really nice man but if you pay attention fully to what he says and does, he wants to be separate or create an inequitable and unjust BBF. He gives "shares" in the RoC over to Turkey, like we have seen with regards to the EEZ issue and gives back nothing to true Cypriots.......Same BS, whats mine is mine is mine and whats yours we share.

His virtues are a myth and his politics belongs to a completely different sphere as far as most Cypriots are concerned. The man is well over rated and I can see that he is unreasonably criticized by the regime in Ankara.

He will become another unrealistic solution wanting has been,

Akinci lashes out at ‘aggressive’ Anastasiades
https://cyprus-mail.com/2019/04/10/akin ... stasiades/

...what does Mr. Akinci not get? It is simple. If he wants to reform the Constitution he can demonstrate that he is a Cypriot.

...i am left, from the day he was elected, wondering, who he has become.

Who can deny that Cypriots voted for him, and yet, since that day (and that angry phonecall), it is for "Turkishness" he speaks exclusively.

Who can forget his ridicule of Mr. Anastasiades for wearing ''two hats''. And while Mr. Anastasiades defends all Cypriots as Individuals, and as Persons he, in the negotiations also represents the island's Grecophones, Where has Mr. Akinci represented himself to Cypriots, a Cypriot, and as such, Mr. Anastasiades' equal, to Cypriots?

He is at this moment, a servant-slave, a parasite, in Erdogan's mind. He must choose.

...is he Turkish, or, a "Turk"?

He can stand beside the Flag of Cyprus. He can say for once that "Turkishness", that which has divided Cyprus for decades, is no better than the "Greekness" he abhors. Cypriots are not "Greeks", and they are not "Turks". One thing is clear, both treat this Flag equally as a rag. And if he continues with his "mentality", who is he betraying?

...i ask Mr. Akinci to remember, i ask all of us to remember, that while the "Greeks" and "Turks" were busy on their killing spree, who is it that they murdered, and made to disappear? "Greeks"? "Turks"? Each other? No, not them, but Cypriots, for "being" Cypriots; this is something to think about.


...not much has changed for me, i am still waiting.

However,this time around, given the pressure he has been put under, it is possible that Akinci will turn to Cypriots, more definitively; frankly, if he were to make such a clear gesture, by standing along the Flag of Cyprus, speaking to Cypriots, as a Cypriot would, for Turkish Cypriots, he would have their support: not just Turkish Cypriots, should he win his election, but all Cypriots, as a negotiator for an end to the Problem, in Cyprus.

...indeed, the last election was for the Legislature which is still for the most part fractured and split. So too the electorate for this election, but for a President, and like the last ''Presidential'' election, a vision, where so far Cypriots continue to be (for the most part) elected.

...he is running as an independent, free of Party dogma, he can do anything.

...and despite the negativity all around him, he is not alone; polls say he may get reelected.

...interesting.

What power Akinci has, standing under the Flag of Cyprus, if he dares, if this, is his conviction (it's election time). It is, in affect, the biggest threat to "Turkishness", (not just in Cyprus, but, in Turkey), his position, so says the "Turkish" Press. This election is to be a kind of referendum, it is also said in the "Turkish" Press. I ask, how far will Erdogan go to put Akinci, "in his place"? How far will Akinci go, to demonstrate he may be Turkish, but no "Turk"? That Turkish Cypriots are not "Cypriot Turks", they are Cypriot first.

Who will he betray? Because it seems that he must decide (no longer silent) and speak clearly; if it is that he is Cypriot. He cannot be a "Turk" as well as Turkish any longer it seems. (The "Turks" call him unreliable, to say the least.)

Thus, standing under the Flag of Cyprus he may be for Turkish Cypriots, (and not "Turkishness",) yet, he speaks to Cypriots, "being" Cypriot in doing so; then, if he wins he has Cypriots' support, the People, not just that of a single community within it.

...how is that for negotiating from a position of strength? Does he have vision? What Legacy will he leave if he does not stand up for Cypriots, Turkish, and Greek? How can Anastasiades, as a Cypriot, a Greek, and as the Republic's President refuse this bold enterprise, for Cyprus, as well, "changing mentality" for better intentions?

This is a (read: the) good beginning step. Cypriots are Cypriots. That Cyprus is Free. It is a State representing its Citizens, on Universal Principals, based on Equality, and having without further distinction or discrimination Individual Rights.

Who can deny that this is the issue, for Cypriots?

If there are Cypriot Constituencies, at another level of Government, so that as Persons, Cypriots have Liberty in representing themselves in National Assemblies as such, one hopes that as majorities holding their own Agendas within their respective territorial jurisdictions, that they may demonstrate the capacity to respect and recognise the minorities that live among them, by providing for them, accordingly, as well their special needs. Is it possible that any one of these Constituencies is incapable of this Goodwill?

...in my mind, it starts with Akinci, with a bang, after all this whimpering, with this election, to focus minds, something simple, like standing under the Flag, his Flag, no more denying it, the Flag of Cyprus.

...but i speak too much, Akinci a voice, at least to Cypriots, as strong as Erdogan's; who can imagine that?.

“Since we also have a right to gas and this is accepted by both the EU, the UN and the Greek Cypriot side, then let us find a common way out. As Cypriots we must find a way of sharing. We can lift tensions and meet in a logical way, otherwise is is easy to see that tensions can grow. Even this shows how much the solution to the Cyprus problem is needed.”
