In recent days, the political news has been dominating, in view of the processes of the upcoming presidential elections, an intense discussion about the profile and the political positions that the former Minister of Health, George Pamporidis, occasionally expressed through his Twitter posts. The tone of this public debate was very high, due to the prospect of a wider cooperation of the opposition parties with a possible common candidate Mr. Pamporidis. AKEL MP's New Forces, Irini Charalambidou, added fuel to the fire with “I do not vote for a candidate from the Alarm” who told Politis 107.6 & 97.6, a statement that forced the party's secretary general, Stefanos Stefanou, to wise little “, and at the same time to emphasize the need for everyone to respect the procedures of AKEL. And suddenly the internet flooded with dating Pamporidis tweets, with the apparent goal of deconstructing his candidacy before it was even officially put up for discussion.
So who, after all, is this fanatical Twitter user with the dozens of posts on Twitter , who wants to become President, at a time when Social Media is playing a very important role in shaping public opinion? Is it conflicting or adaptable to the status quo? Is it blue or red? Does he chew his words or say them out of his teeth?
Through the Twitter life of George Pamporidis one can record:
a) The style and the speech he gives and his positions on various issues of the political life of the place,
b) His attitude towards the government and the parties, both during the period when he was an ordinary citizen and for the period when he was a minister, but also after his departure from the government and DISY,
c) How politicians commented – agreed or disagreed with him.
Likeable or helpful?
He expresses in a caustic way his point of view whether it has to do with the political space from which he comes or has to do with the respective opposition or the government, without looking at the color but the positions expressed by the government.
Politically Correct ;
The formulation of his political positions is not done with the rounded and digestible speech that many politicians are accustomed to, but with harsh expressions and sometimes with slang vocabulary, which can annoy but at the same time touch the current citizen.
Opposite or next to the power and the powerful?
George Pamporidis disagrees fearlessly, putting up with strong political figures – whether they come from the area of the Right from which he comes, or from the Left and the Center. He sings them to the President of the Republic and to government officials and parties.
Bring the young people together
Political positions and views he expresses, concern key issues that concern the place. He is interested in the fight against corruption and entanglement, the participation of young people in politics, the need to modernize Cypriot society, the danger of nationalism and the far right, he does not forget the tragic manipulations for the People's Bank.
Battle for GESS
A typical example of his political philosophy is his action around the efforts to adopt and implement the General Health Plan. Apart from criticism, he also shares thanks to those who supported the GESS, without seeing the political space from which they come.
Pamporidis gives and eats a lot of “wood” on Twitter , he says a lot, he listens a lot. Both for and against. They also fall into trouble, there is no lack of humor. The attitude of politicians towards the positions and policies of the former Minister of Health is recorded.
Yes, there was a time when Irini Charalambidou said that we would miss Pamporidis…
