Erimi to elect new community leader, UK residents lose vote after Brexit

Erimi reidents will elect their new community leader on Sunday to fill the position vacated by the sudden death of Panicos Hadjihambis on January 5.

Britons, permanent residents of the Limassol district community, are excluded because of Brexit.

Limassol district office said that there are 1280 voters of whom 10 are nationals of other EU countries. The 23 Britons who were previously listed on the electoral register no longer have the right to vote.

There will be two election centres at Erimi primary school.  Polls will open at 7 am and close at 6 pm with a one hour break between noon and 1 pm.

Three candidates are contesting the post — Andreas Aresti, Sotiris Gregoriou and Elpidoforos (Elpos) Kyriakides.
