Presidential polls set for February 17

Cypriots will vote for their next president on February 17 next year, it was announced yesterday.

Interior Minister Christos Patsalidis said there would be a runoff on February 24 if there was no outright winner of the first round. The victor must gain 50 percent plus one vote to be elected President of the Republic of Cyprus.

Some 500,000 Cypriots, including several hundred Turkish Cypriots, are eligible to cast their ballot. President Tassos Papadopoulos is seeking a second five-year term but is facing a challenge from three other candidates including AKEL-backed Dimitris Christofias and former Foreign Minister Yiannis Kassoulidis.
