Chief Returning Officer Costas Constantinou spoke of the difficult conditions under which the parliamentary elections are to take place on May 30 but sought to reassure the public.

He said on Wednesday that those working at the polling centres will do so under strict health protocols.

The poll operators will be vaccinated or have tested negative within the previous 24 hours, while mobile ballots will be deployed for voters who are in isolation.

A total of 1,160 polling stations will operate throughout Cyprus, with 429 in Nicosia, 341 in Limassol, 54 in Famagusta, 192 in Larnaca, 134 in Paphos and ten stations abroad.

Constantinou said that an estimated 200 mobile ballots will service voters who are self-isolating after having been in contact with a positive coronavirus case.
