    One of the six ELAM candidates speaks of “the necessity of a change of strategy in the Cyprus issue” but also of the party's timeless position for a Unitary State solution. Mr. Geadis emphasizes the fact that “all these years ELAM has been warning about the risk of demographic change of the island from illegal immigration”, presenting his own proposals. At the level of international relations, Mr. Geadis's position is part of the Eurorealist approach that “seeks to strengthen cooperation in Europe based on the principles of national sovereignty and subsidiarity”, noting that at the economic level “the protection of national interests does not exclude the cooperation, but makes it a strategic choice for achieving long-term economic prosperity and stability.” Finally, the ELAM candidate, as he states, opposes the promotion of the so-called “woke” LGBTI agenda, defending “the traditional institution of the family and the right of a child to have a father and a mother”.

    The Governments of the Republic of Cyprus support and propose the solution of the Bizonal Bicommunal Federation. What do you recommend?

    Unfortunately, I regret to note that for years we have been following a wrong path in the Cyprus issue, locked in endless compromises and retreats that have allowed the Cyprus issue to slide from an international problem, of invasion and continued illegal occupation, to an internal conflict between two communities. After 50 years of fruitless and unsuccessful talks that have led us to the Turkish aspirations, as expressed in the Gallo Plaza exhibition by Nihat Erim in 1964, namely the Federation that will be based on geographical, ethnic and religious divisions. Just like the racist Apartheid in South Africa, which has been condemned by all of humanity.

    The lack of strategic national planning has led us to discuss proposals that legitimize illegality and war crimes, since the de facto illegal partition is turned into a legalized one (de jure), under the “umbrella” of the “federation ». Many times they emphasize that the solution must be viable and functional, but they deliberately forget to mention the most basic of all, that it be democratic, since the DDO is not democratic. That is why it is imperative that we draw up a new national strategy in Cyprus, with the sole aim of liberating our Motherland, that is, towards the solution of the single state, claiming the self-evident legal and historical rights, which apply to all peoples, to be applied to the Greeks as well Cyprus.

    In the event of my election to the European Parliament, one of my main goals is the internationalization of the Cypriot, its repositioning on its rightful basis, the preservation of the Republic of Cyprus as an independent, sovereign, European and democratic state. To send the message to Europe that Turkey as a third country is illegally and militarily occupying European territory and one of the measures that must be immediately put on the Euro-Turkish agenda is the abolition of funding to Turkey and the occupied countries until a real solution to the Cyprus problem is found.< /p>

    Is it a fact that Immigration is one of the biggest problems facing the Republic of Cyprus, are there any solutions?

    First, I would like to mention the fact that ELAM has been warning all these years about illegal immigration and the risk of demographic change of the island. On the one hand, in the northern part through illegal settlement, Turkey is trying to achieve the “Turkification” of the occupied territories, while on the other hand, in the southern part of the Republic of Cyprus, it is trying to change the national and demographic identity through the arrival of thousands of illegal immigrants. To deal with this huge problem, which for us is directly linked to the Cyprus issue, a strict immigration policy must be implemented, which will turn Cyprus into an unattractive destination.

    Unfortunately, the incorrect benefit policies of so many years have turned Cyprus into an attractive destination. According to the Minister of Defense, approximately 10% of the population are asylum seekers, while the Minister of the Interior himself stated that Cyprus is proportionally the state with the largest percentage of asylum seekers in the European Union. Although if our suggestions had been heeded, the problem would not have reached its present dimensions, nevertheless we continue to sound the alarm by proposing solutions that are fully applicable. What is lacking is the political will to be able to implement them.

    There must be a stop to every new asylum application until we reach 1% of the population in asylum seekers, as the EU itself defines. mass deportations of illegal immigrants. In addition, as the Government of the Italian Prime Minister, Giorgia Meloni, did, the Republic of Cyprus must proceed with the creation of Immigrant Reception Centers in third countries, in order to transfer those who enter our Homeland illegally. At the same time, the embassies and consulates of the Republic of Cyprus abroad should be activated, where they should submit their asylum applications there.

    What is your position on strengthening cooperation between EU member states?

    Our position is part of the Eurorealist approach that seeks to strengthen cooperation in Europe based on the principles of national sovereignty and subsidiarity. We support a Europe that respects the cultural, historical and political differences of its nations, while at the same time promoting mutual cooperation to address common challenges. We believe that Europe should focus on policies that promote prosperity, security and innovation, while preserving the independence and autonomy of its nations.

    While Eurorealism focuses on mutual benefit, it differs from other approach models regarding the parallel preservation of a high degree of national autonomy against efforts to centralize power within the EU institutions. to the detriment of individual Member States. Overall, the Eurorealist approach seeks to reconcile the goals of European cooperation with the realities of different national interests and political landscapes in Europe, in the face of decision-making centers where there is often no consultation and we see foreign interests working against the interests of member states at the individual level.

    How will you promote the balance between protecting the national interest and global economic cooperation?

    Protecting national interests does not preclude cooperation, but makes it a strategic choice for achieving long-term economic prosperity and stability. One example is the conclusion of international trade agreements that allow the exchange of goods and services with other countries, thereby promoting our external trade and creating opportunities for growth and investment. According to the data of the Statistical Service, the total imports of goods in 2023 in Cyprus were around €12 million and exports €4.5 million. Therefore, our position is to implement measures that will strengthen this trade balance with measures to support and materially support domestic production, such as supporting the primary and secondary production sectors.

    Now, in the context of promoting the balance between protecting national interest and global economic cooperation, we will pursue a policy based on the intelligent management of international relations. We will promote fair trade agreements that serve our country's interests while ensuring the competitiveness of our domestic industry and businesses. We will promote the maintenance of a strong national economic institutional framework that protects the autonomy and development of our country. At the same time, we will seek to strengthen international cooperation between states to address common challenges, such as the various global crises. At every stage, we will ensure that this cooperation serves the interests and well-being of our citizens, while preserving the autonomy and identity of our country.

    You have mentioned both yourself and ELAM. that one of your basic positions and principles is the defense of the institution of the family. Explain that to us.

    For us as ELAM as well as the Eurogroup we joined, the European Conservatives and Reformists, we oppose the promotion of the so-called “woke” LGBTI agenda which tries to replace the natural with the unnatural.

    In today's battle of the ideologies of Europe, we and the ECR defend the traditional institution of the family and are strongly against adoption by same-sex couples. A child has the right to live and grow up with the sacred role of father and mother and we should not limit this inalienable right of our children in the name of the “rights” of a group. In simple words, for us father is man and mother is woman. Unfortunately, even the self-evident today must be emphasized. Let me remind you that the only party that stood against the passing of the teaching of sexual education in schools, which contains unacceptable ambiguities about the material that must be followed in schools. As a Faction and as a European Political Group, we will never accept the definitions of parent 1 and parent 2, nor that some in fraudulent ways try to convince us that there are more than 2 sexes.
