House President congratulates Kyriakides on her election to the presidency of the PACE

President of the House of Representatives Demetris Syllouris has congratulated the head of the Cypriot delegation to the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) MP Stella Kyriakides on her election to the presidency of PACE, noting that it is “an honour for the House of Representatives, as well as the Republic of Cyprus in general.”

He adds that Kyriakides’ election is “a recognition of the outstanding work she has done in the framework of the Parliamentary Assembly, and that is why she received the support of members from all the political groups of the Assembly.”

“At the same time, the election of Mrs. Kyriakides to the highest position of a European Parliamentary Organisation, the main aim of which is to uphold human rights, is an indication of the possibilities of parliamentary diplomacy,” he says in a press release.
