It is clarified that the participation, excluding the special polling stations for Turkish Cypriots (T/C), reached 32%, compared to 31% at the same time during the 2014 European Parliament Elections.

As regards the participation of T/C in these European Parliament Elections, I note the following:

Until now 4204 T/C citizens of the Republic have exercised their voting right, out of a total of 80.862 who are registered in the electoral roll.

I would like to underline, once again, the significance of these elections for the Republic of Cyprus and also for the whole of the European Union.

As Chief Returning Officer I once again call upon the people to exercise their right to vote.

I hope and wish that our compatriots will proceed en masse to exercise their voting right. I remind that polls will normally close at 6 in the afternoon.
