Republic of Cyprus presidential elections are being held on 17th February.
All three candidates have been invited to the TRNC to communicate their policies to the Turkish Cypriots. This invitation has come from Huseyin Guven, the head of the TRNC Journalists’ Association.
His proposal is that Nikos Anastasiades, Stavros Malas and Yorgos Lillikas attend a press conference at Genc TV studios, which would be broadcast, live. He feels that this would allow mutual concerns to be aired and create an atmosphere of understanding as well as strengthen the chances of reaching a peaceful solution.
There has been no response as yet from any of the candidates to this invitation.
