Indications are showing that Cyprus may be forced to leave the contest next year, due to financial problems, and a decision will be made in the coming weeks. Croatia has already withdrawn thanks to financial strains - and it's very likely Cyprus will follow them.
Greece are also going through hard times too, and could withdraw. They only participated this year because they found a sponsor to fund everything. I think they'll be less than 39 participants next year... Plus it doesn't help that Cyprus failed to qualify in Malmo.
