Gov’t Denies Guaranteed Majorities

Nikos Christodoulides, the Cyprus Government Spokesman declared that “there is no question of guaranteed majorities either with regard to property ownership nor population after a settlement to the Cyprus problem,” according to CNA.

“To restore the truth I would like once more to make clear that there is no question of guaranteed majorities either in the issue of property (ownership) or in the issue population,” he said.  The written statement on January 16 “responded to a Social Democrats Movement press release that stated Christodoulides acknowledged that the Greek Cypriot side accepts guaranteed majority both in terms of property ownership and population in the Turkish Cypriot constituent state after a settlement,” CNA reported.

“I also noted that such an event cannot apply as it violates the core of the acquis communautaire (the laws and regulations of the EU,” Christodoulides wrote.
