Union of Cyprus Municipalities
The Union, as the collective representative of the Municipalities, focuses its efforts on consultations with the Government and the House of Representatives, aiming to correctly address issues that concern and interest the Municipalities. Our aim is to promote the views of the Municipalities by explaining and documenting their positions, so that the final decisions of the Government and the Parliament on political issues consider their views and interests. In addition to representing Municipalities in consultations with the Government and the Parliament, the Union represents the Municipalities and consults with the Political Parties, various public or private law organizations and other organizations and institutions.
Beyond the handling of local matters, the Union represents the Municipalities of Cyprus abroad. The Union actively participates with its delegation in the work of the Congress of Local and Regional Authorities of the Council of Europe, which is the leading European body for Local Government issues. The Union is also a member and actively participates in other European and International Organizations and bodies, such as the European Committee of the Regions (EcoR), the Council of European Communities and Regions (CEMR), the Assembly of European Region (AER).
