As presidential elections got underway in France on Sunday, the French Embassy in Nicosia was operating a polling station for individuals who are registered to vote.
A French Embassy spokesperson told the Cyprus News Agency (CNA) that the polling station opened at 0800 local time and the voting process, for the first round of the elections, will conclude at 1900. He added that approximately 1,100 people were registered to vote in Cyprus.
After the conclusion of the voting process, the votes will be counted and the results will be conveyed to Paris. The polling station is staffed by employees of the Embassy.
The French Ambassador to Cyprus, Salina Grenet-Catalano, has already cast her vote.
The same voting process in the French embassy will be repeated for the second round of the French presidential elections, on April 24, that will take place as long as no candidate secures more than 50 per cent of the votes during the first round.
