  • [01] Voting is running smoothly, police say

    Voting at polling stations across the government-controlled areas of the Republic of Cyprus, in elections for local authorities, is running smoothly, Chief of Police Michalis Papageorgiou has said, adding that by 12:00 noon, when the polling stations closed for one hour, no incidents or problems had been reported.

    The role of the Police is to observe the law and ensure that elections will wrap up smoothly, Papageorgiou said. He pointed out that members of the Police are conducting patrols at polling stations and political party offices, adding that traffic wardens will control the traffic at polling stations and at regional electoral centres, where the votes will be counted.

    Papageorgiou stated that the Crisis Management Centre at Police Headquarters is in constant communication with the Police at polling stations and with the Chief Returning Officer.

    Municipal elections take place every five years in December. The first elections held in Cyprus following the islands accession to the EU took place in 2006. That was the first time other EU nationals secured the right to vote in the Republic in accordance with EU law.
