Christos Stylianides: Cyprus’ New EU Commissioner

Former Government Spokesman, Christos Stylianides, will become the next Cypriot member of the new EU Commission, it has emerged.

Born in 1958, Stylianides was elected Member of Parliament in the parliamentary elections of May 2006, with the Democratic Rally (DISY) and was re-elected in 2011 for the period 2011-2016.

He has served as Deputy President of the Parliamentary Committee on Foreign and European Affairs and a member of the Parliamentary Committee on Labour and Social Insurance.

He has served as a Commissioner of European Affairs of DISY since June 2012 and as a Coordinator for the formation of President Anastasiades’ programme of administration. 

Stylianides took over as Government Spokesman on March 1, 2013, resigning from his post in April 2014 to contest the European Parliament elections.

The two Cypriot candidates for the position, submitted by President Anastasiades, were Stylianides and Demetris Syllouris. Juncker chose Stylianides to replace Androulla Vassiliou as Cyprus’ representative in the 28-member Commission.

President-elect Jean-Claude Juncker has sent the list of Commissioners-designate to Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi in his capacity as President of the Council of the European Union. This follows a series of interviews Juncker held with each of the candidates.

The list is currently pending approval by the Council of the European Union. Following this approval, Juncker is set to announce the distribution of portfolios for the next European Commission.
