Against the background of last Saturday's demonstration and the one planned for next Saturday, an attempt is being made to set the stage for division, polarization and political conflict between the government-DISY and AKEL.
The government, at least in the first phase, does not seem willing to take immediate action on any restrictions related to the restrictive measures before March 15, while at the same time turning its fire on those who violate the decrees and restrictive measures or even those who urge the citizens. to do so. Indirectly, the fire is directed against AKEL and other opposition parties, as well as civil society groups that participated in Saturday's demonstration or will participate in the next one, which is scheduled for next Saturday. DISY through public placements of its executives tries to attribute to AKEL an attempt to degrade the right to life, that it is not interested in the epidemiological picture but also for the next day in Cyprus.
The spokesman of the ruling party, Dimitris Dimitriou, called on AKEL to come out and tell the citizens clearly in case all of the above applies. At the same time, he pointed out that AKEL calls on the citizens to disobey, with the Left party replying that “the only disobedience that exists is the disobedience of the Alarm government to the recommendations of the scientists, to the requirements of the Constitution, but also to the clear directions of the UN. of the Council of Europe on the right to demonstrate “. AKEL in turn accuses the government that under the pretext of the pandemic it is trying to silence society.
