Presidential election dates finalised

The Republic’s upcoming presidential election dates have been announced, with voters to head to the ballots early in the new year on January 28 and February 4, for the first and second rounds respectively.

The 2018 poll dates were finalised after a meeting held at the interior ministry on Thursday afternoon.

The decision means the deadline for sealing the electoral roll and to register a vote overseas for those eligible will be December 18, 2017.

Thursday’s meeting was helmed by Interior Minister Constantinos Petrides, and included the participation of the ministry’s permanent secretary Kypros Kyprianou, Electoral Services officials and members from the Republic’s political parties.
