Such a shame that considering RoC have three official languages there is no effort made to at least put some subtitles in one of the other official languages. I mean, would it not be great for each side to put as subtitles of the other community's language who live on this island as well as subtitles?

...it is costly to do this correctly, what most often is said; yet, intentions count.

Indeed, none of the candidates so far have reached out to the electorate that really counts if they want to solve the Problem; they reach out to the electorate that leads them to power instead.

...and in a country like Cyprus, the crossroad to three continents, one would hope as an important facilitator of exchange that Cypriots nurture their capacity to work in an even wider array of languages.

How costly can it be to put in an interpreter and a fast typist into the studio for 2 hours?
Or perhaps not do it live but add the subtitles afterwards?
Lets face it they just don't care.

I finally got around to applying for an ID card. Should be with me in a couple of months or so.

Christodoulidis will win. So it's basically Anastasiades third term.

No Anastasiades was a known crook before he was elected. Christodoulides has nothing against him, looks very honest, and I am sure he will do much better work, and given the chance with a pro unification TC leader he will solve the Cy Prob too. He is convincing, modern and humble.
It's no coincidence he currently gets 2.5 times more votes in polls compared to Averof or Mavroyiannis.

He also broke the tradition of having party leaders becoming Presidents. It's clear to me that people don't trust the political parties anymore. The one and only non party leader who became President was Vasiliou, and he proved to be the best so far.

Of course Chris is the far better choise, and he'll win easily (i hope so).
Anastasiades is no perfect, but his administration wasn't so bad. He took the job afer AKEL's disaster.
