The World

February 21, 1988

Greek Cypriots vote today in the second and decisive round of the most heated presidential election since Cyprus won independence from Britain 28 years ago. The outcome is wide open in the race between veteran right-wing leader Glafcos Clerides and political newcomer George Vassiliou, finalists after the first round of voting last Sunday. Clerides, 68, topped that balloting with 33.32% of the vote by the 363,000-strong electorate. Vassiliou, 56, a millionaire businessman backed by the powerful Communist Party, polled 30.11%.
