Vast majority of Turkish Cypriots want reunification


The vast majority of Turkish Cypriots in breakaway north Cyprus want the divided island to be reunited, according to a poll carried out by the Center for Migration, Identity and Rights Studies (CMIRS).

The poll, with a random sample of some 500 interviewees, was published on Thursday and has the percentage of pro-reunification pollsters being as high as 67,4 percent.

And the remaining some 32% said they don’t want a solution to the protracted Cyprus problem that much or not at all.

Just like the previous poll carried by CMIRS a year ago, Turkish Cypriots say the bad economy is their biggest problem.

Some 40% said they are confronted with dire financial difficulties, only 15% are comfortable enough and 69,8% believe the economy has worsened over the past couple of years.

The CMRIS is a think tank whose work involves measuring Turkish Cypriot happiness levels and perceptions on key social and political issues.
