ELECTORAL PROCEDURES

On 16 December 2001 General Municipal Elections were held for the Municipalities in Republic of Cyprus. For the first time elections were held on the same day for municipalities both of the free and the occupied areas of the Republic.

The 16 December 2001 elections were held by virtue of the Municipalities Law 111/1985 and its relevant amendments. It was the fourth electoral contest in the Republic of Cyprus for the election of municipal authorities. The allocation of seats in municipal councils was made under the system of simple proportional representation and the counting of votes was made at the polling stations.

The election of the Mayor is done under the system of simple majority, while the members of Municipal Councils are elected under the system of simple proportional representation. In the case of Councilors, voters may place a cross of preference, the maximum number of which is different for every municipality.

Displaced people voted in the Municipalities where they currently reside, while they had also the right to vote for the Municipality of their place origin in case their new residence is in another municipality. This applied in the case of displaced people of occupied Municipalities and the Municipalities of Nicosia, Ayios Dometios and Derynia, part of which is under occupation.
