Presidential elections were held in Cyprus on 28 January 2018.[1] As no candidate received a majority of the vote in the first round, a run-off was held on 4 February between the top two candidates, incumbent President Nicos Anastasiades of the Democratic Rally (DISY) and Stavros Malas of the Progressive Party of Working People. Anastasiades emerged as the winner with 55.99% of the vote.[2]

Electoral system[edit]

The President of Cyprus is elected using the two-round system;[3] if no candidate gets a majority in the first round of voting, a run-off is held between the top two candidates.
