There are many aspects of the Cyprus problem. It is neither just a property or refugee is-sue, nor a territory matter
How probable is it to establish a grand coalition of the two biggest parties, the Justice and Development Party (AKP) and the Republican People’s Party (CHP), in Turkey?
The new parliament opened yesterday with fresh deputies delivering one by one an oath a few of them will forget about soon
Even if there is still a huge discrepancy in the description of terms between the two Cypriot sides, it was hard to believe but even Archbishop Hrisostomos was talking optimistically that perhaps this time a Cyprus resolution might be within reach
In the middle of a night, all of a sudden, something unavoidable happened. A giant plane tree fell.
What was the message of the electorate? Did it say it wanted an end to the Justice and Development Party (AKP) in government?
Buoyed with the “success” of the New York talks, Turkish Cypriot President Mustafa Akıncı shyly declared that even if it would be overoptimistic to expect a resolution to the over-50-years-old Cyprus problem by the end of the year, he could say that a resolution might be achieved within months.
Is Turkey moving forward to embrace an early election within months?
What was the message of the electorate? It was obvious for many people, while many others have been still trying to figure it out.
It was no joke for millions of Turks who queued in front of ballot boxes in the early hours of the day to cast their votes and determine the fate of their country, as well as the fate of the country’s absolute power-seeking president. Was President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan on the ballot? Was it a referendum on presidential powers?
