The RIK poll did not give seat allocations. They said they didn't have enough data to do this. The only seat allocation I saw was from Sigma:

DISY 18 (-2)
AKEL 17 (-2)
DIKO 9 (same)
EDEK 4 (-1)
Alliance 4 (+4)
Solidarity 2 (+2)
Greens 2 (+1)

(evroko does not exist anymore, so -2 from them)

Looks almost identical to the situation in Cyprus in the 80s, 90, 20s, and 21s!

One thing you can rely on is the Cypriot’s steadfast support of the same football team and the same political party for eternity no matter what...

Three Cypriots were talking politics:
The first suggested that if one was to pin a party rosette on a donkey it would get elected.
The second responded that looking at the politicians we have, it probably already has happened....
The third said no, as no self respecting donkey would want to be seen associating with members of the house of deputies.

I think DISY lead is around 4-5 points.
Good numbers for Greens and Citizen Alliance too.
