Cyprus More Divided after Presidential Election
Ersin Tatar, a supporter of separate administrations on the Mediterranean island won a presidential election in northern Cyprus on Sunday against the incumbent president Mustafa Akinci, who had been a supporter of reunification. The election result may influence negotiations over hydrocarbon reserves in the easter Mediterranean, as the hardliner rightwinger is backed by Turkey. In 2019, big gas reserves were found in Cypriot waters and Turkey has been exploring it arguing that it aims to defend Turkish and Turkish-Cypriots’ rights in the eastern Mediterranean. Still, it has been facing condemnation for violating international laws by Greece, Cyprus, Israel, France and the EU. Since the Turkish invasion of 1974, Cyprus has been split between Greek Cypriots in the south and Turkish Cypriots in the north, with Turkey being the only country to recognize North Cyprus as an independent state.
