  • [01] NICOSIA CANDIDACY EUROPEAN CULTURAL CAPITAL

    Mayor of Nicosia Eleni Mavrou launched Nicosia`s effort to be pronounced European Cultural Capital for 2017.

    Speaking at a press conference, Mavrou said various municipalities in the Nicosia District, as well as the Larnaca Municipality, are supporting Nicosia`s candidacy, which she said gave ``new dynamics to the participation of Nicosia.``

    Mavrou expressed hope that all towns in Cyprus would join in the effort, which would enhance cooperation and expand social, economic, cultural aspects.

    Deputy Mayor of Larnaca Alexis Michaelides explained that the Larnaca Municipal Council decided that the priority for the title should be given to Nicosia because it is Cyprus` capital and the only divided capital in Europe, due to the 1974 Turkish invasion and occupation.

    Replying to questions, Mavrou said she would be happy if other municipalities followed the example of Larnaca and supported Nicosia`s candidacy.

    [02] DUST LEVELS HIGH

    Department of Labour Inspection of the Ministry of Labour and Social Insurance issued on Monday a notice on dust levels in the air, advising the sensitive groups of the population, such as the elderly, the children and those suffering from respiratory and other health problems, to abstain from any activities in the open air.

    According to a statement issued on Monday morning, the levels of dust in the air at 9.00am were recorded to be higher than normal, reaching levels between 65 and 173 micrograms per cubic meter (mg/m3).

    We are expecting that the average levels for a 24 hour period will exceed 50mg/m3 which are considered normal according to the legislation, the statement reads.
