The RoC's election for President begins

Postby repulsewarrior » Thu Dec 23, 2021 8:21 pm

...small news, but it begins; candidates declaring their interest in running for the Cypriot Presidency.

DISY one hopes, will demonstrate that they too have all Cypriots in mind when addressing the People as such; AKEL has already indicated that they may be doing the same, (what with a Turkish MEP representing them in the EU, what with Unions joining, as Cypriots, together)

...while "Greekness" has its appeal it is not the only choice, in Cyprus; something to think about.

Sometimes you see a picture and a thousand question come up in your mind.
What year, day and month was this?
Where are they?
Who are they?
Why did they meet at that spot?
What were they talking about?
What are they looking at?
What was the decision they arrived at?
Was there joy in their hearts?
DId they realise the risks they were taking?
Were they prepared to lose all if necessary?
Did they think this will be easy?
..............

Main Opposition Akel’s central committee on Sunday voted in favour of career diplomat Andreas Mavroyiannis being their presidential candidate for the February 2023 elections.

Mavroyiannis, former chief negotiator on the Cyprus problem up until a couple of weeks ago, got 52 votes to 37 ones by human rights legal expert Achilleas Demetriades who is running as an independent anyway. There were also nine abstentions.

Insiders also said there was strong turmoil within the top decision-making body of the leftwing party both on Saturday when they began deliberations till the moment they cast a vote.

Mavroyiannis now has to be ratified at the party’s extraordinary congress on June 5.

...a nice guy who has been a civil servant almost all his life. Can he lead a Party; is he a politician?

...More importantly, is he a Cypriot who sees his electorate as Cypriots; speaking to them? Will he simply struggle to maintain his power among the elites, speaking to "Greeks"?

Why the hell does Akel need to promote outside the party. What the hell is the matter with them.

Mavroyannis have been involved in the talks for a very long time and he has had no results, why would it be any different now?

Absolute waste of time. Thats another 5 years without a solution.

...yet, now he can act; knowing what he does, and who he knows, the inner workings of power, he may end his silence: seeing things quite differently.

I am hopeful though much too exhausted of Human hypocrisy and fear to get excited; but i'll be watching.

...never mind the nay-sayers, Lordo. Their's is the easy and self-fulfilling prediction that is in affect the Problem.

With AKEL, (with their History) it is possible, wounded as they are from the world's harsh reality, (Russia the bad guy on so many levels, to them directly,) they may see their mission far more clearly; to serve working people, to defend the Universal Principles that define us all as one race called Human, to provide Good Government transparent and free of corruption: as Cypriots united in this cause. What was the purpose of electing a Turkish MEP, if it is not to present a candidate for President that speaks to and for all Cypriots? Let's not forget that AKEL has cultured a relationship with other left leaning Parties in the occupied territories; Mr Tufan comes to mind.

A candidate finding support north and south of the Green Line wins.

(no "Greek" candidate and no "Turkish" candidate can compete against that number/tactic, apart as they are; Cypriots have voted as Cypriots since 1960 despite their Leaderships' intentions, what has changed is strategy)

...think about it, in the middle of the Ukrainian War, a Communist Party may win in Cyprus, uniting Cypriots by exposing the "Greeks" and "Turks" for what they are; is that so hard to imagine?

Not at all RW. He is part of the establishment and can cannot change anything other than offer more of the same. No point getting our hopes high after what we have gone through with Nasty.

I actually promoted peace and support yes in the referendum and see what he did once elected. There is no hope left. Unification is finished.

The latest to be added to the growing list of heavyweights this week was former Foreign Minister Nicos Christodoulides, whose candidacy was widely expected, resulting in DISY president Averof Neophytou jumping the gun and putting his name forward before anyone else in the party.

As expected, the wrath from the ruling party was vicious, miffed that the former chief diplomat would split DISY’s votes, some even blaming him for consorting with arch-rivals DIKO of the centre-right.

Instead, they plan to put forward their president, Nicolas Papadopoulos.


...ten candidates at present are running for election.

Disy leader and presidential candidate Averof Neophytou on Monday unveiled his 100-point plan to reform and modernise the country, pledging that under his administration Cyprus would transition to “the next day.”


...an ambitious plan, having 100 points.

I suggest that he thinks bigger, for Cypriots as a whole, not only the Constituency which is electing him.

On the island’s offshore natural gas resources, Neophytou said the window is closing for monetising them, by expediting cooperation with Greece, Israel and Egypt.

“We exclude no one, not even Turkey, from this drive, provided however that there is respect for international law and the Law of the Sea. We believe that hydrocarbons can have added value for all, once the Cyprus problem is solved.”


Very interesting considering there has been no contact with Turkey or TCs about this matter. He is a bigger liar than BoZo,

What does the last sentence mean?
Does it mean that they will take the value and wait till the problem is resolved before giving anything to TCs and Turkey?
Considering they are the ones who have blocked the solution in 2004 and again in 2017, who does he think he is kidding?
Does he take the GCs for fool.
