It is your personal choice whether to vote for me as president, so I can at least try. Between now and February 2023 I will accept the view of the majority, and certainly not the opinions of those that shout the loudest. Some may even maliciously accuse me of being a Turkophile, traitor, or Turkish spy, which I am not. Such unfounded allegations are as absurd as someone alleging our highly respected Niyazi Kızılyürek MEP is a secret Turkish spy.
If you are absolutely against me even discussing the matter with ‘TRNC’, because you fear these negotiations may succeed and possibly pass a referendum, then do not vote for me as president. All I ask is that no one, including the media, twists or misrepresents my radical approach to the Cyprus problem. Cyprus’ media is very much influenced by the three main political parties and the government. It will be an absolute lie to state I am proposing a two-state solution. My proposed framework to a solution is to initially have no framework for talks with everything on the table. Everything therefore must include discussing a two-state solution with ‘TRNC’. I will not offer it.
If you are against discussing the matter with ‘TRNC’, yet firmly believe these negotiations will fail, let alone pass a referendum, but agree with most of my other manifesto initiatives to transform Cyprus, then vote for me. Replace the political dinosaurs with someone new, with fresh ideas to transform Cyprus together. I have transparently spelt out exactly what my plans are to fix Cyprus together.
After 50 years, I see it as my patriotic duty despite the risk of personal physical danger to myself from self-appointed ‘patriots’, to help find a viable solution including substantial compensation for all GCs, with possibly 60% distributed to the 1974 GC refugees or their heirs. It will never compensate for the loss of our loved ones or the missing, but it may help ease some of their pain.0
