Cyprus junior coalition partner poised to quit government

NICOSIA (Reuters) - A junior partner in Cyprus’s center-right government said it was poised to quit the coalition in disagreement over a decision to restart peace talks on the ethnically-split island.

A spokeswoman for the Democratic Party said members of its executive committee decided to recommend to its key decision-making body withdrawal from the government which it has been a member of for a year. The central committee of the Democratic Party was scheduled to meet on February 26 to discuss the recommendation.
