The Cyprus Animal Party on Saturday presented their candidates for the EU Parliamentary elections that will take place in May.
The party will field five candidates: Neophytos Neophytou, Avraam Themistokleous, Kyriacos Kyriacou, Michelle Metzidi and Angela Agathangelou.
Party head Kyriacou said that the party will be celebrating five years in the public sphere next month, which is why they chose five candidates to run in the elections.
He added that the Animal Party, along with 12 other animal parties in European countries, is one of the most developed political parties on the continent. Kyriacou said that next month the 12 parties would present a common manifesto in Brussels.
Referring to the establishment of a Commissioner for Animal Welfare, Kyriacou said that they are waiting on President Nicos Anastasiades to decide, and that they are waiting to hear his decision on the establishment of a animal welfare councillor.
