  • [01] STATE BUDGET 2009 APPROVED

    The Cyprus House of Representatives, after a three-day debate, approved late Thursday the 2009 state budget.

    The 2009 state budget, as it was voted by the House plenary, provides for 8.26 billion (bln) euros in expenditure, and revenues worth of 6.87 bln euros. The budget deficit is 1,390 million euros.

    The budget was approved by 33 votes in favour and 20 votes against.

    Left-wing party AKEL, Democratic Party and Social Democrats Movement EDEK as well as the Ecologists and Environmentalist Movement, voted in favour.

    The main opposition Democratic Rally party (DISY) and the European Party voted against.

    [02] CHRISTOFIAS - CYPRUS TALKS

    President of the Republic of Cyprus Demetris Christofias said that he expected better results from the ongoing talks, he is engaged in with the leader of the Turkish Cypriot community, noting that so far he is not too happy.

    ``I am glad that together with (Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali) Talat we put an end to the deadlock but I am not so happy because of the way we handle the negotiations and because of the results. I expected better results,`` he told a reception hosted by French Ambassador to Cyprus Nicolas Galey, to mark the end of the EU French presidency.

    UN led talks between Christofias and Talat began on September 3 and so far 12 meetings have taken place focusing governance, power sharing and foreign relations.

    ``My vision is to reunite the people. I want to serve together with Mr Talat the Cypriots, without separating Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots,`` he stressed, recalling that his sole aim for which he ran for the presidency of the Republic earlier this year was to bring about a solution to the Cyprus problem based on principles, the UN relevant resolutions and the High Level agreements, of 1977 and 1979 which provide for bizonal bicommunal federation.
