Hope for Cyprus?

There is a mood of uncertainty in Cyprus in the wake of sunday's indecisive elections in the TRNC. The government of Prime Minister Dervis Eroglu has submitted its resignation to the President, Rauf Denktash, and negotiations will begin to form a new government among the parties in the deadlocked parliament. In the meantime, Turks.US reports that Turkey and Turkish Cyprus are preparing to propose a solution to the Cyprus problem next week. This is according to Turkish Foreign Minister Abdullah Gul. Moreover, despite the stalemate in the TRNC, Prof. Michalis Michael of La Trobe University in Melbourne, Australia, is optimistic that the time is ripe for a solution as Cyprus nears the 30th anniversary of its division.
