The formal part of the process of selecting a candidate for the ruling party was finally closed last Sunday, with Averof Neophytou officially taking the anointing of the candidate and listening to what he wanted to hear from Nikos Anastasiadis. The next day, he found the candidate himself and the party leadership, ready to go deep, with Democratic Alarm executives saying they had already rolled up their sleeves and got a job.

Their motto is one: “Rally”. This is the message that the Supreme Council of the party wanted to convey with the slogan: “Unity – Victory” and reports about “Trojan Horses” that are used to remove DISY from power. “DISY government will be only with Averoff”, the party executives constantly state, wanting to draw a dividing line, telling their people that any other choice will be a vote against their party.

In the offices of Pindaros there is great satisfaction after the Supreme Council last Sunday at the stadium “Eleftheria- Tassos Papadopoulos” and “elevated morale”, as stated by executives of the party leadership. What is widely discussed and brought smiles to the executives and the leadership of the Democratic Alarm is the clarification, as they believe, that was made regarding the case of Nikos Christodoulidis, both in relation to the position of President Anastasiadis and in relation to the process. . They typically state that, it was formalized from the podium of the Supreme Council of the Democratic Alarm that everything could be done and real opportunities were given to Nikos Christodoulidis to claim through the party procedures the anointing of the candidate for the Presidency of the Republic. They believe that with what he said from the podium, President Anastasiadis closed the chapter once and for all, putting an end to the whispers circulating about the backstage support of the former Foreign Minister, while the massive presence of both the Government and the members of the Supreme Council gives the best answer. to those who try to cultivate doubts. The Supreme Council, as they say, is the heart of DISY and passes the message to more and more people.
At the same time, according to sources from the Democratic Alarm, the party offices are making a more general assessment of the information surrounding the formation of the political scene. What they record, with satisfaction, as they say, is that the intensifying information about the support of the candidacy of Nikos Christodoulidis by DIKO, works in a way that unites the alarmed voters in favor of the candidacy of Averof Neophytou. The same sources even support the following regarding the possibility of supporting Christodoulidis by DIKO:
– The script provokes anger in a large part of the DISY world.
– It refutes its narrative that it is above parties and independent.
– The former Foreign Minister sends contradictory messages by staying “that it is a continuation of Anastasiadis and DISY while seeking the support of other parties.
” Even if it does not manage to have support from any party, DISY will be a government only with Averof Neophytou “, said a typical official party.
At the same time, in Pindarou they note that behind the scenes information has started circulating about the intention to form a party in the future by Nikos Christodoulidis, something that causes concern in other parties besides DISY. “When the party that nominated him behaves in this way, imagine how he will behave in other parties”, note executives in the corridors of Pindar.
Along with the above, the ruling party believes that with the final shaping of the political scene with the candidate or candidates of the opposition parties, there will be a clarification of the image and this will help highlight the stakes and dilemmas of the elections for society.
In the next period, the Democratic Alarm will officially enter the depths of the pre-election with the culmination of the pre-congress dialogue in view of the ideological-political congress of the party that will probably take place next June. In the context of the contacts and gatherings that are taking place during this period to record positions and views of the party members and the wider society, the president of DISY, will have the opportunity as a candidate for the Presidency of the Republic to unfold his positions concerning its governance program. Which, according to sources from Pindarou, will be characterized as:

Upward trend for Achilles Dimitriadis – & nbsp; Hezekia Papaioannou /p>
The name of the lawyer Achilleas Dimitriadis, who has already announced his candidacy for the 2023 presidential elections, seems to be gaining more and more ground in Hezekiah Papaioannou, in view of the impending wreck of AKEL's cooperation with the Democratic Party.

As part of Hezekiah Papaioannou's effort to cooperate with DIKO, attention was focused on other solutions that could be accepted by both parties. Lately, however, given the upward trend that has begun to record Achilles Demitriadis, who seems to have a positive impact on the wider Left, it seems that the trend in support of his candidacy by AKEL is strengthening.

In such a case, of course, many see support for the candidacy of Achilleas Dimitriadis from a number of environmentalists and from other areas, offering him the momentum to pass to the second round of the presidential election and expecting a cooperation in the final contest. & Nbsp;
