Staffs and candidates are ramping up as the election progresses and the clock starts counting down. With moves of substance but also of impressions, they try to gain ground against their opponents. Averof Neofytou, Andreas Mavroyiannis and Nikos Christodoulidis, continue energetically next week, with announcements, gatherings and mobilizations at an organizational level. At the same time, contacts between candidates and parties continue.
Averof Neofytou enters strongly next week with the announcement of his 100 policy axes. An announcement which is scheduled for Monday afternoon in Eleftheria Square, in the presence of executives and members of the party, as well as the public. The 100 policy axes summarize the stigma of Averof Neophytos' proposals, as a result of the party's pre-congress dialogue in the previous period. The policy axes cover all the capital issues, such as the Cyprus issue, foreign policy, the economy and dealing with accuracy, education, health, defense and various others. In Pindarou they now want to emphasize and convey the message to society that Averof Neofytou has ready proposals and ways of implementing them.

< b>Averof: Routing takes place
At the ceremony that marked the start of the construction works of the Paphos-Poles Chrysochous highway, the president of the Democratic Alarm and candidate for the Presidency of the Republic, Averof Neophytou, was present yesterday. “An important day for our Paphos, for the whole of Paphos up to Polis Chrysochous, slowly and despite the great crises that the place went through in the last nine years, the national road network is being completed. A network that, in this particular case, the first design in the modern way of entrusting the designers and contractors with the responsibility of design and implementation, started in 2002 with the routing of the road and with the well-known BOT method”, he said and added that after 20 years again the government of the Democratic Alarm as the way started, now with Nikos Anastasiadis it is being implemented. “But a lesson once again, if the road started in 2002 and was completed, it would end up with 50-60 million, now to finish it might not reach 400 million. Delays in decision-making and implementation are costly, just as the delays in taking measures to deal with the financial crisis of 2013 cost our country. But we must look ahead, our country has enormous prospects when the right decisions are made in right time”, concluded Averof Neofytou.
