President Erglu, during a visit by the Association of Erenkoy Freedom Fighters, criticized the protestors from main opposition CTP who gathered outside the Presidential Palace yesterday and accused him with nonchalance.
The President partly blamed the Special Advisor of UN Secretary General on Cyprus Alexander Downer for inciting protests against him with visits to NGO's and some political parties.
Recalling ex President Mehmet Ali Talat's 2 year term as a negotiator at the talks Eroglu said, "They are trying to say that the previous negotiator had sorted everything and I came in and spoilt everything. When I came there were six chapters. None was tied".
CTP's ex president Talat and Greek Cypriot leading party AKEL's and Greek Cypriot Administration leader who called each other companions had also failed to struck a deal in two years of negotiations Eroglu reminded, and said, "If you have your companion opposite you, you must bear in mind that still there is a mind that does not want a solution".
Eroglu said CTP and AKEL had long been convening and producing solutions but in the two year of talks between Talat and Christofias none of the chapters was closed.
He reiterated that Turkish Cypriot was the side putting forth all proposals, citing proposals on the Governance and Power Sharing issues and Property that was turned down by the Greek Cypriot administration.
"On the issue of presidential election we put forth 2-3 proposals. We suggested to put it to public vote but got rejected. We said, the senate with equal number of senators should decide, they refused that too" he said.
