For the Republic of Cyprus, the 13 June 2004 EP elections acquired sui generis significance. As with the other nine ‘newcomers’, the event was an experience of self-evidently historic proportions and a paradigm of mixed feelings. On 24 April 2004, Greek and Turkish Cypriots voted in referendums on the future of the divided island. A ‘Yes’ vote would have led to a ‘United Cyprus Republic’ acceding to the EU on 1 May and the Euro-election following a different (logistical) course, refl ecting the new – albeit quite obscure or underarticulated – political and social realities.
