As far as the Local Government elections are concerned, AKEL gives the initiative and the voice to the local community.

For the candidacies of Mayors and municipal councils, decisions are taken at the level of electoral assemblies per Municipality. This was emphasized by the General Secretary of the party, Stefanos Stefanou, speaking on Friday night in Paphos at the event organized for the historical figure of AKEL and the popular movement, Yannis Sofokles.

Through this democratic process, he said, AKEL has already formed its ballot papers in some of the Municipalities of the Paphos district and very soon will announce the rest of the pending decisions, in the Municipality of Paphos, the Municipality of Poles Chrysochous and respectively for the vice-mayors and the municipal councils.

Referring to the general economic situation faced by Cypriot households, the General Secretary of AKEL spoke of ominous prospects and of a phenomenon that is not temporary and will not end soon. We, Mr. Stefanou pointed out, had from the beginning asked for measures which would last and which would be directed in the direction of relief and support  of households and small and medium enterprises.

Fuel and heating are expensive, he pointed out, and Cyprus is at the bottom of the EU in relation to the average access of citizens to energy issues. We are also below the average in taking measures to support society, since instead of the support measures being around half a billion euros, like the European average, unfortunately we are only at 200 million euros.

Speaking to event of memory and honor for the historical member of AKEL, Stefanos Stefanou said that Yannis Sofoklis with his action contributed to the development of the province and city of Pafos and to the improvement of the standard of living of its people. He wrote a very long story, that's why we honor his memory on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of his birth, he concluded.

The Regional Secretary of AKEL Paphos, Andreas Fakontis, also addressed the event, while  part of the family was spoken by his son, Dr. Stelios Sophocles.

The event ended with a short artistic intervention.
