BUCHAREST (Reuters) - Nicos Anastassiades, the head of Cyprus' opposition right-wing Democratic Rally, said on Wednesday he aimed to form a broad-based coalition government focused on investment-oriented growth and creating jobs.

"I will form a national unity government to get the job done and bring the people and the parliament together," Anastassiades told reporters on the sidelines of a meeting of European centre-right parties in Bucharest.
