  • [01] PAPACOSTAS - CYPRUS PROBLEM

    Cyprus Defence Minister Costas Papacostas has said that developments are expected soon on the Cyprus problem, adding that people of Cyprus must remain united, with a view to achieve its goals through the right policy and strategy.

    Speaking during a memorial service for Christos Tsiartas who was killed in the 1955-59 EOKA struggle against British colonial rule, Papacostas recalled that Cyprus President Demetris Christofias is constantly reiterating the need for unity and noted that a settlement of the Cyprus problem must guarantee the best future for Cyprus.

    Papacostas wished that the Turkish intransigence is lifted, so that occupation of the island is terminated and Cyprus and its people are reunited, in conditions of safety and respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms.

    [02] EDUCATION MINISTER - STATE UNIVERSITIES - ADMISSION STANDARDS

    Minister of Education and Culture Andreas Demetriou has said that the state Universities of Cyprus plan to introduce new admission standards for students of minority communities and Cypriot repatriates.

    Invited to comment on press information that GCE examinations will be part of the admission criteria for students, the Minister said that the two state Universities, the University of Cyprus and the Cyprus University of Technology decided to expand their admission criteria in order to give the opportunity to Cypriot repatriates, students of minorities as well as other candidate students who do not enter the Universities through the pancyprian examinations, to be admitted to the state Universities.

    He clarified that the number of the aforementioned students categories would be for the University of Cyprus 10% of the total students number and for the Cyprus University of Technology 3%.
