European Elections 2019: Former President Vassiliou points out importance of elections

Sunday’s European Elections are especially important because it is the first time that so many Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots are voting together, former President of the Republic George Vassiliou has said.

Speaking after casting his vote at a polling station in Nicosia, Vassiliou said that above all we are Cypriots, members of the European Union.

Just think that 500 million people are living in the EU today, from all nations, all religions, all ideological beliefs, irrespective of social origin, and all together are working for the common good. Unfortunately, in this united Europe, Cyprus is the only country that remains divided. We hope that this situation, this insecurity, will end, he added.
