DISY MEP Christos Stylianides has been officially appointed the next Cypriot in the new EU Commission headed by Jean-Claude Juncker. The former government spokesman has been given the Humanitarian Aid and Crisis Management portfolio.

President Nicos Anastasiades had submitted two candidates for the job of Cypriot Commissioner: Stylianides (former government spokesman and current MEP) and Demetris Syllouris (MP and head of the government’s junior partner EVROKO).

Juncker chose Stylianides to replace Androulla Vassiliou as Cyprus’ representative in the 28-member Commission.

Stylianides will  also be responsible for Civil Protection, Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA).
