President Makarios attempted to fix the apartheid 1960 constitution with 13 proposed amendments. All hell broke loose. Now the Republic of Cyprus (RoC) discovered lots and lots of natural gas in its exclusive economic zone and opted to divide it into 13 plots! The RoC has elections coming up in 2013, not to mention than on November 30th of 2013 it will be 50 years since the 13 constitutional proposals. Last, if we find a solution in 2013 it will be 39, or 3 times 13, years after the 1974 catastrophe! Any triskaidekaphobics around?

I am looking for the person to lead Cypriots into the future. Any ideas? Why?

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.
