Elsewhere, Labour Minister Zeta Emilianidou remains in a medically induced coma as she receives treatment in Athens after suffering cerebral aneurism, with President Nicos Anastasiades set to visit her today.

In other news, six out of ten of Cypriots aged 25 to 34 hold a degree, the third highest rate in the EU and well above the bloc’s target of 45 per cent by 2030.
