The Cyprus Hunters party on Monday said they would contend the upcoming parliamentary elections, joining forces with Independents Movement, headed by independent MP Anna Theologou.
“After much consideration, we decided that, for our voice to be heard clearly and to move away from the political establishment, siding with the Independents was the best thing to do,” a Cyprus Hunter statement said.
“The new cooperation with the Independents aims to preserve and improve hunting activity in Cyprus, through respect for nature and with progressive environmental ideas.
“Our environment and hunting activity require sympathetic people, far from the political world we all know. We therefore call on all conscientious and law-abiding hunters to come together in full force so that no decisions can be made for us without us anymore,” the statement concluded.
Parliamentary elections are scheduled to be held in May.
