  • [03] Spokesman - Turkey - Letter Nicosia, May 29 (CNA) - The government believes the only thing that could halt Cyprus' European Union (EU) accession course is omissions and mistakes on the part of the Republic, Spokesman Michalis Papapetrou has said, adding that the government will continue working in a way that will facilitate the accession process. The Spokesman also said a letter Ankara is said to have sent to European Union member-states, urging them to suspend EU enlargement, reflects Turkish policy. CNA/MA/MM/RG/2001
  • [04] Elections - New Deputies Nicosia, May 29 (CNA) -The composition of the eighth House of Representatives, since Cyprus gained its independence in 1960, is illustrated by many changes and surprises since many deputies did not manage to be re-elected while almost half of the 56th seat parliament is made up of new deputies. A total of 24 new deputies were elected while 12 former deputies did not seek re-election and another 12 did not manage to be re-elected. CNA/AAR/RM/ECA/RG/2001
  • [05] Outgoing House President - Statement Nicosia, May 29 (CNA) - President of the outgoing House of Representatives, Spyros Kyprianou, said the new parliament should play a major role to end the Turkish occupation of the island's northern third. In a public statement congratulating the members of the newly elected House of Representatives, Kyprianou stressed the next few years will be very decisive for the island's future and noted that the House has a very important task to accomplish. CNA/ECA/RG/2001
  • [06] Spokesman - Interior Minister - Elections Nicosia, May 29 (CNA) - The government does not consider the outcome of Sunday's parliamentary elections as a change of the political scene nor does it interpret it as a disapproval of its policies, its Spokesman Michalis Papapetrou said here today, commenting on the election result that gave the main opposition AKEL party a very narrow lead over the ruling Democratic Rally (DISI). Commenting on the election procedure, which experienced a four-hour delay in the announcement of results, Interior Minister Christodoulos Christodoulou said he has ordered an inquiry into the matter, but stressed that the elections were conducted in an orderly and democratic manner that ensures objectivity. CNA/MM/RG/2001
  • [07] European Parliament - Cyprus - Turkey Brussels, May 29 (CNA) - The European Parliament will, for the first time, call upon Turkey to respect a ruling by the European Court of Human Rights relating to serious human rights violations in Cyprus. The decision to follow this course of action was taken today by the parliamentary committee on foreign affairs and will be put before the plenary session of the European Parliament in June. CNA/NB/MM/RG/2001
  • [08] Greek Foreign Minister - Statement Budapest, May 29 (CNA) - Greece will continue to promote its national interests and the accession of Cyprus to the European Union, with or without a prior solution of the political question, the country's Foreign Minister George Papandreou said here today. Speaking on the sidelines of the NATO ministerial meeting, he said Turkey and Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Denktash will continue to react as long as Cyprus' accession is getting closer to realisation. CNA/KI/MM/RG/2001
  • [09] KISOS leader - Intention to resign Nicosia, May 29 (CNA) - President of Social Democrats Movement (KISOS), Vassos Lyssarides, announced here Tuesday he is undertaking responsibility for his party's failure at Sunday's parliamentary elections and will quit from the leadership during its next congress. Lyssarides told journalists his resignation does not mean he will give up his parliamentary seat, which he intends to retain. He did not rule out the possibility of seeking the presidency of the House, if other parliamentary parties make such a proposition to him. CNA/NMA/ECA/RG/2001 CNA ENDS
