The scene remains fluid regarding the Presidency of the Parliament, with the processes of the parties being in progress and the names in the background coming and going. The fact that the two major parties have not yet made their decisions leaves all scenarios open.
The Politburo of DISY met, authorizing Averof Neophytou to evaluate the data and to bring a proposal before him for discussion. What Pindaros's leadership is saying is that any proposal will be made on the principle that there will be no bargains or transactions. The most probable scenario is estimated to be the choice of the candidacy of the Presidency by the president of the party, Averof Neophytou.

Yesterday, the name of EDEK MP Kostis Efstathiou was widely circulated, as a proposal that fell on the table for AKEL circles to observe, in a scenario of revival of the tripartite front if DIKO is convinced in such a collaboration. Some on the Left see the claim of the Presidency by Andros Kyprianou as a scenario. In these scenarios, the equation does not come from the fact that the president of DIKO, Nikolas Papadopoulos, is also thrown into the battle. The decision of the parliamentary group of DIKO that met yesterday is the claim of the Presidency of the Parliament by the president of the party. It is also stated by party officials that they are open to dialogue with all parliamentary parties, not excluding the Democratic Party. In the latter, the first post-election crisis began to appear. Marios Karoyan, according to information, will hold the parliamentary seat, under pressure from DIPA executives who do not recognize any commitment to Votsi. The Ecologists are coming down with Theopemptou, while as it is known, ELAM announced Christos' candidacy.
