Juncker to visit Cyprus

Jean Claude Juncker has presented his team as "political, not technocratic", featuring several former premiers and fewer career bureaucrats.

Jean-Claude Juncker, the European People’s party (EPP) candidate for President of the European Commission after the European parliamentary elections, will visit Cyprus May 3 and 4, ahead of the European Parliament election later that month, DISY leader Averof Neophytou said on Saturday.

At the Congress of the European People’s Party in Dublin last month, Juncker, Luxembourg’s former finance minister, was elected as the EPP candidate. For the first time, the post will be elected depending on the result of the Pan-European election.

While in Cyprus, Juncker will attend a cultural festival in Old Nicosia, both as a sign of support for Cyprus and a chance to drum up support for his campaign in the “battle for a better Europe”, said Neophytou.
