    Turkish Cypriots go to the polls

    Nicosia, Feb 20 (CNA) -- Voting has begun in the Turkish occupied areas of Cyprus, where nearly 150.000 registered persons will cast their ballot to ''elect'' 50 representatives at the self-styled parliament.

    Seven political parties and two independent candidates are contesting the ''elections'' and all indications are that only three parties will secure the five per cent ''electoral threshold'', the Republican Turkish party (RTP), the National Unity party (NUP) and the Democratic Party (DP).

    Initial results are expected to be announced after midnight tonight. The final outcome of the ''elections'' is due out on Monday evening or possibly Tuesday, when the names of the successful ''candidates'' will be announced.

    In a letter to the Secretary General, Cyprus' Permanent Representative to the UN Ambassador Andreas Mavroyiannis stressed that the root of the Cyprus problem is the continuing occupation of the island's northern areas by the Turkish military and called on Ankara to help create the conditions that would lead to the resumption of talks.
