Attempt to balance and equal treatment of specialized members of the Police who carry out search and rescue duties and because they do not have a university degree they cannot have a proper promotion in the Police

Law, on the basis of which the Chief of Police will be able to promote specialized members of the corps depending on their qualifications and experience, the House of Representatives voted unanimously.

The relevant law proposal was filed by the individual socialist MP Kostis Efstathiou, who mentioned that a related law passed in the past was referred by the former President Nikos Anastasiadis because it was deemed unconstitutional and violated the principle of equality.

He added that the present proposal is an attempt to balance and equal treatment of specialized members of the Police who carry out search and rescue duties and because they do not have a university degree they cannot have a proper promotion in the Police. He also said that hundreds of thousands of euros have been spent on their training and these people are receiving many proposals from neighboring countries in the Middle East and are being offered much higher salaries.

He explained that this particular proposal gives the Chief the right to promote specialized members of the Police, regardless of whether they have a university degree and based on regulations to be approved by the Parliament thereafter. He added that it is the minimum they owe to these people who practice the very difficult profession of lifeguard.

DIKO Member of Parliament Christiana Erotokritou spoke in favor of the proposal, which she described as very correct. He stated that “we have come to measure the contribution to the police only by the weight of university degrees” and said that these people should be upgraded and properly recognized for what they offer.

AKEL Member of Parliament Aristos Damianou greeted the proposed law and said that it is an effort for fairer treatment of people who serve the Republic of Cyprus by carrying out many times dangerous tasks. Stating that the previous attempt was rejected, he called on the new Government to allow this legislation to be implemented because it is a fairer system. He added that there are many distortions in the Police and a comprehensive approach is needed from the state.

DIKO Member of Parliament Zacharias Koulias pointed out that helicopter pilots who themselves paid to get the qualifications have the rank of sergeant and called on everyone to assume their responsibilities.
