tCypriots rights enshrined in 1960?

Why can't tCypriots allow themselves to question the soundness of the prime document of the Cyprus Republic, the 1960 constitution? Is it not a fact that the Constitution did not emanate from the free will of the Cyprus people but was imposed upon them by virtue of the London-Zurich agreements, which was the origin of feelings of discontent among the overwhelming majority of Cypriots?

Isn't that the exact same thing that tCypriots' "protector", Turkey, has just started doing in the Turkish Parliament, trying to root out unjust clauses in its own constitution?

I ask tCypriots to explain to a European or an American (not me, if not deserving enough in their eyes), why did the authors of the 1960 constitution grant guaranteed representation in state positions for the tCypriot then 18% minority 1.67 & 2.22 times their population numbers at the expense of all other communities of Cyprus? These multipliers would be about 3.0 & 4.0 the current tCypriot population of Cyprus!

Turkey's Kurds & Cyprus' tCypriots

As either unitary state or federation solutions are discussed as replacements to Cyprus' 1960 and Turkey's 1923 unworkable constitutions, should we abide by "if a right is a right too many for Turkey's Kurdish community (circa 23% of population) then that right is a right too many for Cyprus' tCypriot community too (circa 15%), and vice versa." Is the adoption of this fair logic the catalyst to securing just solutions for both UN countries.
