JV Marios Pelekanos expresses strong criticisms against AKEL on the occasion of the party's reaction to the decision of the PD to appeal to the Supreme Court in relation to its associates / advisers.
In a written response to AKEL, Mr. Pelekanos states that “we are not surprised by the behavior of AKEL” and that “the champions of populism now want to become judges and decide before the Supreme Court on the appeal of the President of the Republic.” .
The JC states that in democracies, what is legal and what is not is decided in the courts based on the Constitution and the laws.
According to Mr. Pelekanos, “AKEL either does not understand or deliberately ignores that the President, exercising his constitutional rights, is appealing to the Supreme Court for a matter of principle concerning the responsibilities of the executive and legislative branches.”
“It is a given that he will fully respect the decisions of the Supreme. “We hope that AKEL is ready to show the same respect and not be forced to demonstrate again outside courts and police stations as it did in the past, for the” political prisoners “”, the Spokesman concludes.
