    The Cypriot government has expressed satisfaction regarding the impeccable parliamentary elections, which took place yesterday, and especially for the proper behaviour of the citizens both during the pre-election period and the elections themselves.

    ``The controversies and tension we saw in the past among the candidates, especially on the day of the elections, did not appear, they have totally disappeared in these elections and we welcome this,`` Government Spokesman George Lillikas said today.

    He added that the Cypriot citizens showed a very high level of political behaviour and accountability, adding that the elections do not cause a rift among the candidates any more but become a topic of democratic dialogue.

    Asked if the government felt strengthened with the result of the elections, Lillikas said the President of the Republic himself stated yesterday that the government appeared strengthened, adding that both the government and the political powers of the island must make their evaluations and receive the messages of the voters.

    He added that the government continues its work to implement the administration programme of President Tassos Papadopoulos, which has been formed in cooperation with all parties participating in the government.

    ``Let us build on that which unites us and not on that which separates us, to create a strong internal front,`` he concluded.


    President of the Republic Tassos Papadopopoulos said here that in the effort for a free and united Cyprus, no one can be spared and no one can be absent.

    In a written statement after voting ended in Sunday`s elections for the 56 seats at the House of Representatives, President Papadopoulos told reporters at the Presidential Palace that as of tomorrow all jointly must handle together the challenges that may arise before us and fight to achieve the great aim, which is a functional and viable solution to the Cyprus problem.

    In his statement to the press, President Papadopoulos said the elections were carried out in an impeccable manner, worthy of our democratic tradition and the increased demands of the citizens of a modern European state.

    I want to note and praise the political maturity and the high level of democratic political spirit demonstrated by the whole of the electorate. Contrary to some intense pre-electoral verbal confrontations, the electorate has voted in a civilized, calm manner, he underlined.

    President Papadopoulos said that according to police reports there has been no incident involving conflict or confrontation among the voters. I praise this high level of political ethos and for this I congratulate our democratic people. This is the first and foremost aspect I wish to highlight. And for that I wish to commend first and foremost the voters as well as the political party leaderships.
