Ballot boxes for AKEL

The time for announcements for AKEL in view of the parliamentary elections has arrived. Ballot boxes for potential party candidates are being set up today, with Party Base Groups being called upon to decide on party candidates by province. The validation of the results will take place in the Central Committee on Saturday and the official announcement of the candidacies will probably follow.

The process was completed yesterday in the provincial committees, except for the province of Larnaca, which will complete today, with the list of nominees and their ranking going to today's provincial conference for a final vote and determination of the final list of candidates for each ballot. province. As for the result of the vote of the provincial committees, the information states that there were no surprises, as first-class party executives remained far below the ranking in relation to other people.

This fact has not gone unnoticed in the party wells and despite the fact that this is not particularly important in today's vote, it is nevertheless something that is being discussed among party officials, mainly as to how party members work in the provincial committees and causing discomfort. It should be noted, of course, that the number of people who voted in the provincial elections is not large.

Nevertheless, the fact that first-class executives remained quite low in the rankings with only the parliamentary representative of the party, Giorgos Loukaidis, who was second, saved, caused some murmurs. It is indicative as it is said that the spokesman of the party Stefanos Stefanou was 8th in a row, MP Aristos Damianou 11th, the provincial of Nicosia – Kyrenia, Christos Christofidis 15th, and in the penultimate position (18th), the first in cross preferences in 2016 , Irini Charalambidou.

In Limassol, first in the ranking was Julia Khovrina-Komnenos, from Russia, while the lawyer and president of Monogony, Argentoula Ioannou, was ranked 15th.

In Famagusta, first on the list is the current AKEL MP, Giannakis Gabriel, while Chrysanthos Zannetos, the provincial secretary of Famagusta, was in 8th place, while the internationalist / political analyst, Charalambos Chrysostomou, was only in 13th place.

Party officials, however, pointed out to “F” that the order in which they go to the polls today has nothing to do with the final result.

According to our information, 16 polling stations across Cyprus will operate today. All AKEL members elected to a party post have the right to vote, which in total number about 2,000 people. Every member who has the right to vote, votes in his province. For the provinces of Famagusta and Kyrenia, a parallel vote will be taken on both the place of residence and the place of origin of each member originating from the occupied provinces. It is noted that based on the party's statutes, the Central Committee has the possibility to make a change in the ballot, but it is not something that is common.
