The decision of the Central Committee of AKEL to proceed with the adoption of the candidacy of Andreas Mavrogiannis is a blow to the efforts to achieve the maximum possible cooperation of the opposition forces in the upcoming Presidential Elections, estimates the independent Presidential candidate, Marios Iliadis./p>
In a statement he states that & # 8220; it is not a matter of face but of wider handling & # 8221; adding that & # 8220; since the other opposition parties have not yet taken final decisions it is obvious that there was and still is room for further consultation & # 8221 ;.
Therefore, continues, & # 8220; a new dialogue in this direction, without completed and premeditated decisions, is the obligation of all of us, those who envision a new Cyprus with a new government that focuses on the citizen, the eradication of corruption and unworthiness and the coveted reunification of our homeland & # 8221 ;.
As Marios Iliadis reports, & # 8220; My personal union candidacy, which was put forward from the beginning to serve this goal, remains at the disposal of the Cypriot people as well as the opposition parties & # 8221 ;.
& # 8220; I reiterate that the opposition parties can even owe it to them to run in the elections united and with a candidate of common acceptance and enhanced eligibility, because only in this way will the end of the current government be ensured & # 8221 ;, the candidate for the Presidency of the Republic concludes.
