The new Greek Cypriot President, Tassos Papadopoulos, is a 69-year-old lawyer by training with more than four decades of experience in politics.
Mr Papadopoulos first made his mark in domestic politics when, still in his 20s, he became the youngest minister to serve in a government in Cyprus after independence from British colonial rule in 1959.
Observers say Diko has historically taken a hard line on the peace process, and that Mr Papadopoulos has tried to allay fears that he should not be trusted with it and to dispel perceptions about his policies.
