 Stravara Mas: Panicos Papadopoulos   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-29)
The article in question claims that Tassos Papadopoulos is in a panic because of the massive 76% NO vote in the Annan referendum of 2004 and is now becoming the most fervent and committed supporter of YES to secure AKEL's support for the 2008 presidential elections.
Clever Giorgos and his boss Tassos were, of course, killing two birds with one stone: distancing themselves from the NO-voting public's perception of the Government's obligations, and defaming a confirmed YESsie at the same time.
Simply, Tassos Papadopoulos is applying the Byzantine-style politics he learned at the knee of his political daddy, the late Archbishop Makarios III.

 Eyes on Greek Cypriot election - Turkish Daily News May 21, 2006
Papadopoulos has shrugged off international complaints and sought to capitalize on the result of the 2004 referendum throughout the parliamentary campaign, and pundits say he'd have been foolish not to.
As a young man Papadopoulos was a key member of the political wing of the EOKA guerrilla group, which fought to end British rule and carried out armed attacks against Turkish Cypriots, aiming at annexing Cyprus to Greece.
Papadopoulos, under the wing of his mentor, Archbishop Makarios, who was president from independence in 1960 until his death in 1977 and who pushed for unity with Greece, joined its first government at the age of 24, becoming the island's youngest ever minister.

This being the case, Papadopoulo's victory is unlikely to make a difference in settlement negotiations unless there is a major change of policy on the Turkish side.
Papadopoulos, who heads the centre-right Democratic Party, won with the backing of the powerful Communist Akel Party -- which enjoys the support of 33 per cent of Greek Cypriots -- the small Socialist Party and the Greens.
Papadopoulo's victory means Clerides will not be able to sign a reunification deal before the 28 February UN deadline when he leaves office.

Living up to his reputation a for lack of communication skills, Papadopoulos, when asked whether it were true that he is sending an envoy to New York, replied in his characteristic manner: “We have agreed with the secretary-general that all actions relating to the preparation of the talks will not become public.
Since the rejection of the Annan plan by the Greek Cypriots, Papadopoulos, labeled the “unwilling” partner, has been refusing to give in on anything, whether it be approving the release of funds for the Turkish Cypriots or approving direct trade between the Turkish Cypriots with the EU.
According to information, Papadopoulos and his rejectionist friends will pursue a policy of procrastination in order to make Turkey sign the Ankara Agreement by Oct. 3 and then will try for the new negotiating framework of a central strong authority in which, of course, the Greek Cypriot side would have the upper hand.

NICOSIA - New Cypriot President Tassos Papadopoulos, who wants changes to a UN peace plan for Cyprus, is working against the clock in efforts to reunify the island in time to join the EU in 2004, analysts said yesterday.
Although Papadopoulos, 69, was painted as a hardliner on the Cyprus problem, he insisted he would deliver a better settlement based on the UN reunification plan than the veteran Clerides.
Papadopoulos denies he is a “rejectionist” but has little affection for Denktash, who sees the new president as someone who wants to take everything away from the Turkish Cypriots.

Sunday, May 21, 2006; 2:22 PM NICOSIA (Reuters) - Cyprus voters bolstered President Tassos Papadopoulos in a parliamentary election on Sunday, applauding a government that has threatened to veto Turkey's EU entry talks.
And his policy is to overcome the U.N. plan and to squeeze concessions out of Turkey on its path to EU accession," said analyst Hubert Faustmann at Intercollege.
Papadopoulos and AKEL are partners in a governing coalition which has warned it could veto Turkey's bid to join the European Union if Ankara does not comply with EU commitments to open its ports and airports to Cypriot traffic by the end of this year.

PRESIDENT Tassos Papadopoulos said yesterday he would not insult Greek Cypriots by putting the Annan plan as it stood to a second referendum, and spoke of the loneliness of having the fate of the country in his hands.
Papadopoulos insisted the Greek Cypriot side wanted a solution within the framework of a new initiative based on European law and human rights, and should not be punished because they had expressed their free will in April’s referendum on the UN plan.
Papadopoulos said he disagreed with much of the report, which also criticised him personally for urging Greek Cypriots to vote ‘no’, and called the Greek Cypriot side to task for not having made full use of the negotiating process.
