According to electoral sources, Jristodulidis, a former member of the government party, Agrupación Democrática, ran as an independent candidate and obtained 32 percent of the votes, still insufficient for victory in the first round.

Meanwhile, the candidate Andreas Mavroyiannis reached 29.6 percent and in third place was the leader of the government party, Averof Neofitu, who obtained only 26.1 percent of the total votes counted.

For his part, the Minister of Advanced Education, Demetrio Nicolaides, congratulated the also former Minister of Foreign Affairs for the result in the presidential elections, which positioned him in the first seat before the ballot.

“Congratulations to Nikos Hristodulidis on his success in the first round of the Cyprus presidential election. We look forward to his victory in the second round next week!” the official said.

The participation in the elections was 72 percent, a figure that has not had a great variation compared to the first round of the 2018 elections.

“Today our country has spoken clearly. I am ready to take on the great responsibility. Our doors are open to all who care about the future of our country. We are not going to exclude anyone,” said Jristodulidis.

Meanwhile Andreas Mavroyiannis declared that “faith in a solution to the Cyprus problem on the basis of a bizonal and bicommunal federation puts us in the same group. It allows us to overcome our differences.”
