As he stated, based on the informal meetings that preceded between the two parties, but also the general rhetoric and attitude, it is found that “DIKO also understands the need for change in the place, that there are too many deadlocks and that it can not continue the government. We consider that this common finding is also a solid basis on which we can base any discussions and any efforts to have some cooperation “.

Regarding the general position of AKEL, Mr. Stefanou stated “we will seek meetings to fireball the ground to see if we can cooperate with the opposition parties”, adding that “we want to have meetings with the Ecologists” , EDEK and with DIPA “.

AKEL, he noted, “approaches the dialogue with the opposition parties on two levels: first, to discuss possible convergences that may occur in policy pillars that are important, and at the same time, at some point, if these discussions proceed. “Naturally, we will also discuss names, because without a presidential candidate you do not hold elections.”
