  • [01] FREE GAZA - SHIP

    Free Gaza Movement ship, carrying humanitarian aid for the Palestinians, set sail on Wednesday for Gaza, in defiance of the Israeli naval blockade.

    The Greek-flagged boat embarked on its first attempt to reach Gaza at noon last Monday, but was forced to turn back to Larnaca, Cyprus, after technical failure.

    On Tuesday, 12 members, including Greek MPs Sofia Sakorafa and Theodoros Dritzas, a crew member and journalists, withdrew from the mission.

    According to Vangelis Pisias, Coordinator of the mission and Free Gaza Movement representative, the mission comprises 26 people, seven crew and 19 activists.


    The Ministry of the Interior will be posting 20,000 letters over the next few days to new voters, who are or will be 18 years old in June 2009, when the European Elections are set to take place, according to Demetris Demetriou, a Ministry officer, in charge of elections.

    Demetriou has told CNA in an interview that letters will also be sent to citizens of other EU member states, who had registered to vote in the municipal and community elections, asking them if they wish to vote for a Cypriot candidate in the European Parliament.

    An innovation in this year`s European Elections with the operation of polling stations abroad is still pending, Demetriou said, noting that, although political parties agree with the idea, the proposed legislation has not yet reached the House of Representatives but is still with the Attorney General.
