    EU presidency to submit explanatory notes to leaders

    by Maria Myles

    Rome, Oct 5 (CNA) - The Italian presidency of the European Union will submit later this month to the 25 EU heads of state or government detailed explanatory notes on three issues discussed here yesterday by EU foreign ministers, who met on the sidelines of the Intergovernmental Conference (IGC).

    The notes, to be tabled before the leaders of the 15 EU member states and the ten acceding countries, including Cyprus, relate to the proposed creation of a legal council, the suggested composition of eight sectoral councils (such as general affairs, external affairs, justice and home affairs, agriculture and commerce) and the rotating presidency of these councils.

    Nicosia, Oct 5 (CNA) - Ben Hur, a fifty-one-year-old playground horse that occupies a place in the Municipal Gardens in Nicosia, has been recently renovated and has become the inspiration for a children's book entitled ''A new coat for Ben''.

    On October 8, Nicosia Mayor Michalakis Zambellas will unveil the newly refurbished Ben Hur - repainted, oiled and surrounded by a safe surface - during a ceremony in the children's playground in the Nicosia Municipal Gardens, Ben's home.

    President has reservations over some draft constitution provisions

    Nicosia, Oct 5 (CNA) - Cypriot President Tassos Papadopoulos said today that the government had a few reservations regarding certain provisions of the EU draft constitutional treaty.

    Speaking at Larnaca Airport on his return from Rome, where he attended the Intergovernmental Conference, which examined the draft constitutional treaty prepared by the Convention on the Future of Europe, the President said Cyprus considers the issue of Commissioners as one of the most fundamental, noting that the Republic insists that every country should have at least one Commissioner with a right of vote and specific competencies.

    Asked about statements by Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Denktash that if the Greek Cypriot side is hoping for a victory of the ''opposition'' during the December so-called ''parliamentary elections'' in the Turkish occupied areas of the Republic then it is betting on the wrong horse, President Papadopoulos said ''this is Denktash's view''.
