The election of any new members is subject to the approval of the Central Bank of Cyprus.

BoC officially exited administration on July 31, after completing its recapitalisation using depositors’ cash.

It had been in administration since the end of March, after the EU approved a €10 billion bailout for Cyprus on condition that it closed its second biggest bank, Laiki, and use uninsured deposits – over €100,000 – to recapitalise BoC.

Uninsured depositors saw 47.5 per cent of their money seized, receiving equity in return.
