It's Round Two for Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades and his leftist challenger, Stavros Malas, who will battle it out in Sunday's presidential runoff.After 14 years in the U.K., he moved with his wife and four children to Cyprus in 2001 and continued his work at the Cyprus Institute of Genetics and Research.He resigned his post in October 2012 when he decided to run for the presidency.He managed to achieve 43 percent of the vote in the 2013 runoff with Anastasiades, a respectable number given the strong public backlash against the Christofias government.Nicos Anastasiades has for decades been a mover and shaker on Cyprus' political scene.
