The run off between the two presidential candidates in South Cyprus will be on Sunday, February 24th. This is because the favourite candidate, Nicos Anastasiades was unable to gain a majority in the elections on February 17th.

However Turkey’s EU Affairs Minister, Egemen Bagis, said that he believed the outgoing president Christofias was “a big joke” he added “I am hoping that the new president and the new leadership in Greek Cyprus will not be an additional joke but a serious counterpart for Turkish Cypriots, Greece and Turkey to deal with.

Bagis continued that Turkey would accept any peace plan that was agreed by both sides in Cyprus, as long as the Turkish Cypriots have political equality.
