First lady to continue work as party official

FIRST Lady Elisabet Christofia will continue to get up and go to work at AKEL’s Nicosia district offices, the way she has been doing for over three decades.

The 55-year-old, who spoke to the Cyprus Mail prior to her husband’s successful election to the country’s highest office, said she would continue to juggle home life and politics the way she always has.

Asked at the time how she hoped to manage her duties as First Lady, Christofia said she would undertake whatever was expected and asked of her. Having accompanied her husband to a number of official events during his stint as House speaker, the ardent AKEL supporter expressed the confidence that she would be able take her new role in her stride. She has also accompanied her husband to a number of public functions in his role as AKEL leader.

Following in the footsteps of outgoing President Tassos Papadopoulos’ family, Christofia said she and her family would not be moving into the Presidential Palace. Instead the presidential family would continue to reside at their Makedonitissa home, where they have lived many years.

Elisabet Christofia has said she enjoys being around people.

“It is no pressure and I feel very comfortable with people I’ve just met like we’re old friends,” the 55-year-old said.

As an active AKEL member, Elisabet Christofia said she had worked hard to achieve her husband’s election last Sunday. In her eyes, a loss would have meant AKEL would have been unable to achieve as much as it wanted in the way it wanted.

Referring to her husband, the 55-year-old talked about a man with a good heart, who took into consideration the opinions of people around him. A man who was not stubborn, but operated collectively and inclusively.

According to Christofia, her husband also has green fingers and an affinity for sewing on stray buttons.

“He’s generally a jack of all trades,” she said.
