New Horizons (Greek: Νέοι Ορίζοντες) was a radical right-wing populist[1][2] political party in Cyprus founded in 1996. It aimed for a unitary state of Cyprus and rejected a federation of the Greek Cypriot and the Turkish part.[3] In the legislative elections of 27 May 2001, the party won 3.0% of the popular vote and 1 of 56 seats. In 2005, it merged with Evropaiki Dimokratia to form Evropaiko Komma.
