/ Disy battle could determine party future


Most of yesterday's papers returned to a variety of local issues on their front pages.


_ lead on the forthcoming elections for senior positions in the governing right-wing Disy under the headline "Elections with perspectives." The paper predicted a "battle" for the position of vice president. Machi said the filling of the position would determine the party's future and that the choice of vice president would also indicate members' leanings as far as the future party president was concerned.

The paper also reported on an outbreak of salmonella due to high temperatures. Machi quoted a gastroenteritis specialist as saying that the disease was spread by food and water that had been infected by animal droppings.

The specialist, Dr Louis Loizou, said that the best way to avoid the illness was to cook foods and especially meats well and that frozen foods should be completely defrosted before cooking. Haravghi devoted almost half of its front page to an anti-war event organised by its communist sponsor Akel.

The paper said that the event was held in all towns on Tuesday and had been held in protest to the continuing Nato air attacks on Yugoslavia. The stand in Nicosia's Eleftheria Square was visited by House president Spyros Kyprianou and other dignitaries.


_ also said that siesta shopping hours began on Tuesday with stores staying closed from 1 until 4 pm.


_ reported that Cypriot students were being duped into paying thousands of pounds for Master's degrees that were not valid and also reported that 56 bodies had been found buried in the same grave during exhumations in Lakatamia cemetery. The exhumations are being carried out in an effort to discover whether bodies in the cemetery belonged to the missing.


_ said that a number of Yugoslavs had asked Cyprus for political asylum. The paper expressed concern that Yugoslavs would drain the Cypriot economy. According to Alithia's sources, 80 Yugoslavs in Cyprus have already asked for financial help from the government. The paper also said that 3,500 Yugoslavs had sought refuge in Cyprus.


_ reported that the price of diesel would be raised closer to that to that of petrol. The paper continued that new tax measures suggested by the government would also include higher cigarette, alcohol and car license prices.
