    With only five days to go before the parliamentary elections, political parties and their candidates are bracing themselves for what promises to be yet another week full of statements and counterstatements, on issues that have dominated the political arena in Cyprus in the past few months.

    Some 500.000 Cypriots will go to the polls on Sunday to elect the 56 members of the House of Representatives.

    Campaigning ends by law on Friday at midnight and for the first time in parliamentary elections the votes will be counted at the 1216 polling stations, to be set up in the southern government controlled part of the Republic.

    A total of 487 candidates are contesting the elections and 8 persons are standing for the post of representative of the three religious groups represented in the House (Maronites, Latins and Armenians). The three representatives have no right to vote at the House.

    In these parliamentary elections about 270 Turkish Cypriots will also vote to elect the Greek Cypriot members of parliament.

    First official results are expected at around 2100 (1900 GMT) on Sunday.

    The cost of the elections is estimated at around 2,5 million pounds, slightly higher than the cost of the previous parliamentary elections in May 2001.
