President Anastasiades will be meeting with the leaders of Cyprus’ political parties on Saturday, government spokesperson Nikos Christodoulides said.

The participants of the meeting are as follows:

DISY head, Averof Neophytou, AKEL Secretary General Andros Kyprianou, the deputy head of DIKO Markos Kyprianou, EDEK head Marinos Sizopoulos, Symmachia Politon head Yiorgos Lillikas, the deputy head of the ‘Solidarity’ movement Polis Palikaros, the head of the Green Party Giorgos Perdikis, and the head of ELAM Christos Christou.

The government spokesperson Nikos Christodoulides and deputy government spokesperson Victoras Papadopoulos will also attend the meeting.

Christodoulides said that they will be conducting a preliminary discussion on the function of the National Council and then Anastasiades would inform them on the intensified Cyprus talks.

The government spokesperson added that an evaluation has already been made on the parties’ reactions and proposals, which they submitted.

“The government estimates that some of the proposals could be satisfied and could find a common ground, so as to have the body be more result-orientated,” Christodoulides mentioned.

On the confidentiality of the National Council discussions, the government spokesperson said that everyone will have to be responsible.

The National Council had previously stopped meeting, following a decision of the President, when documents and information on their discussions was leaked.
