Dear Members of Accept – LGBTI Cyprus,

​We remind you that this Saturday, December 14, 2019, we will have The Annual General Assembly of the organisation on 10.30 at the University of Nicosia, in Room M203 (Millennium Building), where the elections for the appointment of the new Board of Directors of the organisation will take place. This year, Accept’s Annual General Assembly will be open only to members of the organisation.

Following changes in the legislation concerning NGOs, as well as the latest constitutional changes of the organisation based on those, we remind you that just like last year it is no longer possible to use proxies or electronic voting and members will need to attend the General Assembly to cast their votes. You can download the guidelines for the elections here, were you can also read the running candidates’ application responses.

Relevant guidelines for the conduct of the electoral procedure have been sent with the first mailing on 19 November 2019. The election of the members of the Board of Directors will be by secret ballot. Each voter can vote for an equal number of people as many as the available positions. In this year’s procedure every voter can vote from 1 to 7 candidates upon receiving his ballot paper on the election day and placing it on the ballot box.

The ballot box for voting will be open from 10.30 till 13.00 and members will be able to vote during this time. All candidates taking part in the electoral procedure, must receive at least 20% of the valid votes cast, otherwise their participation in the process is deemed void.

The members of the presiding Bureau, with the agreement of the members of the General Assembly, will be the committee which will be responsible for the operation of the day, the observance of the agenda and the announcement of the voting results. The votes will be counted by the Electoral Commission, with the agreement of the members of the Assembly, and will be confirmed by the Bureau before the announcement. The members of the Bureau and the Electoral Commission keep the votes secret during, as well as after the end of the electoral process.

Full members need to have a paid subscription for 2019 to be able to vote. Subscription renewals (and payments for 2020) will be able to be made during the Annual General Meeting.

Dear Members of Accept – LGBTI Cyprus,

Following the invitation sent regarding the Annual General Assembly of Accept  – LGBTI Cyprus on October 17th, we would like to inform you that the day of the Assembly is transferred one day before for Saturday, December 14, 2019 in Nicosia at 10:30 am in Room M-203 of the University of Nicosia.

The annual Electoral General Assembly to fill vacant positions of the Board of Directors will follow. New members, without the possibility of voting in this electoral process, can register at the general assembly.

The topics up for discussion during the Annual General Assembly are:

  • Presentation, discussion, and approval of the actions of the Board of Directors
  • Presentation, discussion, and approval of the annual financial report
  • Discussion about any other business
  • Elections for the new Board of Management

Α detailed agenda will be sent together with the second mailing documents at the beginning of December. In the meantime, we welcome any suggestions from items to include from members at

Elections for the new Board of Directors

At the end of the General Assembly an Electoral General Assembly will follow for elections to join the Board of Directors.

The LGBTI community consists of people who belong to multiple communities and have other identities too, while facing different situations in their daily lives. With full understanding that the organization should represent all LGBTI persons, we are increasingly paying attention to the intersectionality and inclusion of all LGBTI persons coming from different backgrounds. Examples include people that come from different geographic regions of Cyprus, religion, ethnicity, age, physical ability, social and/or economic status.

For this reason, we particularly welcome applications from people of multiple identities that are ready to contribute to our work on educating and promoting the rights of all of us. Diversity is an important challenge that we have embraced at Accept. But this is not something we can achieve alone. We need others to step up to the challenge too.

Ευρωεκλογές 2019 - Θέσεις Υποψηφίων σε ΛΟΑΤΙ θέματα

  Οι εκλογές για το Ευρωπαϊκό Κοινοβούλιο του 2019 έρχονται σε ένα όλο και περισσότερο πολωμένο κοινωνικό και πολιτικό κλίμα. Οι βασικές αξίες και τα πρότυπα στα οποία βασίστηκε η ΕΕ - ο σεβασμός της ανθρώπινης αξιοπρέπειας και των ανθρωπίνων δικαιωμάτων, της ελευθερίας, της δημοκρατίας, της ισότητας και του κράτους δικαίου - τίθενται υπό αμφισβήτηση και τα ανθρώπινα δικαιώματα, ιδίως τα ανθρώπινα δικαιώματα των ΛΟΑΤΙ, αντιμετωπίζουν μια ισχυρή πρόκληση.
