    On the occasion of the Greek Orthodox Easter, the management and staff at CNA would like to send their best wishes for a Happy Easter, good health, happiness and progress.

    The Agency will be closed on Good Saturday, Easter Sunday and Easter Monday.

    Normal services will resume on Tuesday, 26 April.


    President of the Republic of Cyprus Demetris Christofias confirmed on Thursday that he has sent letters to the UN Secretary General and the Presidents of the European Council, Commission and Parliament, denouncing the arrogance with which Turkish officials are behaving towards Cyprus.

    President Christofias said he would not be revealing the content of the letters but noted that they refer to ``the arrogance and cynicism with which the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Turkey and other Turkish officials behave towards Cyprus.``

    Replying to questions after a ceremony at the Presidential Palace to wish Happy Easter to the staff, President Christofias said that the Republic of Cyprus is closely following the intentions of Turkey to carry out explorations in Cyprus` exclusive economic zone, and is in close contact with the EU and Greece.

    ``The situation is being closely monitored by the Republic of Cyprus. We are also in contact with the EU and with Greece, of course, because this is an issue that is of direct concern to Greece, and we are coordinating efforts in order to tackle any possible interventions and/or threats on behalf of Turkey in our exclusive economic zone.``


    The President of the House of Representatives Marios Garoyian has called on voters to go to the polls in next months parliamentary elections, following recent surveys suggesting that the coming elections will be marked by high abstention.

    ``The parliamentary elections of May 22 take place at a time when Cyprus faces serious problems,`` Garoyian said, addressing the last House plenary session before the elections, adding ``the Cyprus problem is in a particularly delicate and crucial phase and the consequences of the global financial crisis create new pressing problems to the Cypriot economy and the Cypriot people.`` ``Abstaining from the elections means refraining from assuming responsibility. It means abolishing the most important right the citizens have,`` he added.

    Garoyian called on the young people to ``take the country`s future in their own hands,`` noting that they have many options. ``There is the rewarding vote, the punishing vote, the rejecting vote; the applauding vote, the vote of support, the vote of criticism and the correcting vote. They will decide, but surely abstention is not a responsible option,`` he added.
