According to the Constitution of the Republic of Cyprus, the Religious Groups of Maronites, Armenians and Latins form an equal and integral part of the society of Cyprus.
By decision of the President of the Republic, issues relating to Religious Groups were included under the responsibility of the Presidential Commissioner. This reaffirms the State's sensitivity and support for religious groups in equal treatment with the rest of the population at all levels, as well as the creation of a useful and beneficial manner of communication with the Presidency of the Republic.
With a defined strategy for achieving goals effectively, the Presidential Commissioner promotes specific actions that promote and highlight the religion, history and culture of each Religious Group. Meetings are being held on a regular basis with the Representatives of the Religious Groups in the House of Representatives, their Religious Leaders, communities, associations and other organized groups.
In cooperation with Ministries, Services and educational institutions (universities, schools) as well as in consultation with representatives of the Religious Groups in each case, meetings are being held and actions are being taken to better support and promote requests and resolve issues that affect them.
