Unity and left politics tops the poll

Following up my previous entry, Dimitris Christofias (AKEL), has been elected President of Cyprus.

He has already received congratulations from Turkish-Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat of Cumhuriyetçi Türk Partisi (Republican Turkish Party) – a left leaning party which has been in negotiations on rapproachement with Christofias’ AKEL for a number of years.

Remembering Connolly’s claim that the Irish working class are the only incorruptible inheritors of the Irish freedom struggle, is the Cypriot left going to teach us a lesson in reunification?
