* Rauf Denktash, who led the Turkish Cypriot move to declare an independent state in the north of this divided island, was reelected president of the breakaway republic. With 70 percent of the votes counted, Denktash had 38,118, or 68 percent, with the remainder divided among five other candidates.

The election was considered another effort to cement the independence of the state of 150,000 residents proclaimed in November 1983. Greece denounced the elections, saying they undermine efforts by U.N. Secretary General Javier Perez de Cuellar to solve the Cyprus problem.

Denktrash told a jubilant crowd in the center of north Nicosia: "The world will have to respect the republic founded with your good will and I promise you there will be no agreement in Cyprus without the guarantee of Turkey for your security."
