national councilThe National Council is to convene for three days of intensive discussions on Cyprus reunification talks on April 26th, 27th and 28th, said Government Spokesman Stefanos Stefanou.

Among the hot issues to be debated are the rotating presidency and property ownership. Today, President Demetris Christofias briefed the National Council on developments in the talks between him and Turkish-Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat.

In initial reactions, Demetris Syllouris, who heads the EVROKO party, said his party is not in favour of a rotating presidency. Leader of the socialist EDEK party Yiannakis Omirou said that the rotating presidency proposal was 'undemocratic'.
