European Elections 2019: Citizens should participate in Europe all year round, House President says

Participation in Sunday’s European Elections should be high, but the participation of the citizens should be 365 days a year, President of the House of Representatives Demetris Syllouris has said.

Speaking after casting his vote at a polling station in Nicosia, Syllouris said politicians should create interactive methods and procedures so that the citizens can be heard daily and take their own responsibility.

Europe, of course, must improve, it must become Europe of Europe and not Europe of some countries, he said, adding that Europe should have a single approach in order to address serious problems, such as climate change, immigration and employment, and enter the new age of technology with single approaches and policies.

Syllouris pointed out that in Europe and in Cyprus we must bring to the centre of our policy the real problems of the people.
