Pindarou is concerned about the risk of low turnout in the February 20 internal party elections, due to measures against the pandemic, as well as the obligation to pay subscriptions for the right to vote in the financial crisis – many people are facing serious financial problems.
DISY executives commented on politis.com.cy that the whole process that emerged τα unexpectedly and suddenly, surely this time too will leave wounds, as in 2016 (there was a wild background then with the aim of keeping the current MP and vice-president out of the ballot DISY, Annita Dimitriou – the then spokesperson of the Alarm and current Minister of Education, Prodromos Prodromou, had unfortunately stated: “We have elections, not beauty pageants”). From Pindarou they wish and hope that there will be no negative impact on the turnout at the ballot box.
Indicative of what is happening is the fact that the head of the Legal Office of DISY, Christos Triantaphyllidis, was recruited at the session of the party's political office the day before yesterday, to interpret the provisions of the statutes for quotas.
