Greek Cypriots will go to polls Sunday to elect 56 new members of their parliament.
A record number of 493 parliamentary candidates -- 488 from 12 parties and five independents -- will compete to grab one of the 56 seats in the House of Representatives.
Nearly 543,000 voters are expected to cast their votes between 7 a.m. (0400GMT) and 6 p.m. local time (1500GMT).
The results are expected to be announced by 11 p.m. (2000GMT) Sunday.
The new parliamentarians are going to be sworn in September for a term of five years.
The island has been divided into a Turkish Cypriot government in the northern third and Greek Cypriot administration in the southern two-thirds after a 1974 military coup by Greece was followed by Turkey's intervention as a guarantor power in Cyprus.
