REGARDING ‘TERRORISTS’: London, 21 – There is no better indication of Britain’s fears and concern regarding the situation in Cyprus than a report from The Times correspondent in Nicosia. «The events of the past two days,» writes the correspondent, «leave little doubt that the clandestine organization EOKA (the National Organization of Cypriot Fighters, led by Colonel Georgios Grivas-Digenis) is controlled by men with experience in ‘terrorist’ methods and who know how to construct and use explosives. Under normal conditions, it would be impossible to find such men in Cyprus and so the suspicion that they have been brought in from elsewhere is not unjustified,» concludes the correspondent. ELECTORAL SYSTEM: The prime minister, Mr Constantine Karamanlis, has made the following statement: «The government, taking into consideration the current political situation and the decisive influence the electoral law would have on its further development, has decided to recommend to Parliament a majority system with limited representation for the minority.»
