Qualitative Info

There have been no programs or initiatives at the regional level. The former mayor of Nicosia Eleni Mavrou who came from the ranks of the left-wing AKEL often participated in anti-racist panels and made the municipality's facilities ready available for anti-racist and anti-nationalist events but led no concerted effort in combating racism. The mayor of Limassol who also comes from the ranks of AKEL has also participated in anti-racist events and assists NGOs with anti-racist initiatives but again has not developed a program to combat racism.
