In the foreground, there seems to be complete stagnation in the pre-election period, but in the background, things are moving at a rapid pace, prescribing developments in view of the continuation. The leak yesterday of the meeting between Nikola Papadopoulos and Nikos Christodoulidis gave new food for comments in relation to the scene for the presidential elections.
The two of them, as reported by some information, met and drank coffee at the request of the president of DIKO, discussing casually and informally. Of course in the relaxed conversation were both the presidential and the processes that take place at all levels. On the part of the Democratic Party, they deny the meeting of their president with the former foreign minister, however the information insists. In a period of course waiting for a meeting with the secretary general of AKEL, would not like to see that moves are being made on a parallel level. At the same time, however, many consider that the appointment and its leak serve DIKO and its president Nikolas Papadopoulos, essentially putting pressure on AKEL in view of the contacts they will have. & Nbsp;
From the side of the Democratic Party, the information about the tendency in favor of a possible candidacy of Nikos Christodoulidis is intensifying. A scenario that favors a portion of people within the party, considering the case of the former Foreign Minister as an ideal opportunity for the party to become a government. From this equation, they exclude the possibility of cooperation with AKEL, betting on the popularity that seems to be recorded by Nikos Christodoulidis. Against this scenario, however, there are negative high-ranking party officials, who believe that since the former Foreign Minister is not differentiated and declares himself a follower in the essence of the government of Nikos Anastasiadis, DIKO can not support him. In any case, the scenario of Nikos Christodoulidis as plan B is something that has been discussed and is being discussed among the party executives. Of course, the only fact that is in the foreground is the will as expressed at the party's political congress by the majority of party executives and this is the fireball survey of collaborations with the opposition parties, considering DIKO president Nikola Papados as the most suitable candidate. p>
Next week is expected to be crucial as developments seem to run at various levels in the background. The limitation period of Stefanos Stefanos, who was positive for the coronavirus last week, ends on Monday. At that time, the date for the first date between the two is expected to close in order for the corresponding developments to start.
Recently, the rumors about the resumption of Pindaro's flirtation with Nikolas Papadopoulos in view of the presidential elections have been intensifying. In the government camp they continue the gatherings and contacts with the party base, focusing on the goal of the party gathering. Averof Neophytou sent a clear message last Saturday, both inside and outside the party, stating that there is no plan B and that the party is running in the presidential elections with the sole aim of winning them. Nevertheless, some still consider that it is excluded that the president of DISY, who is famous for his foresight, has not studied other scenarios on the way to the ballot box. The only thing that is certain so far, however, are the preparations that are being made for the Supreme Council that will take place on March 12 and in which Averof Neophytou is expected to formally receive the anointing of the party's candidate for the presidential elections. President Anastasiadis will also attend the session in his capacity as a member of the Supreme Council, delivering a speech. Today, the president of DISY will attend and intervene in his conference held by the Institute “Glafkos Clerides” for the “Future of Europe” and which will be attended by important personalities. Among them will be the Vice President of the European Commission Margaritis Schoinas, the Vice President of the European Parliament Eva Kailis, the Ministers of Foreign Affairs of Greece and Cyprus Nikos Dendias and Ioannis Kasoulidis, as well as the Minister of Finance Konstantinos Petridis and the Minister of Labor Z. >
Nikos Christodoulidis continues his daily contacts with party executives and representatives of social groups. In this context, he also saw Nikolas Papadopoulos in an informal meeting they had. Information states that the former Minister of Foreign Affairs has informal contacts even with DISY executives, while he is also preparing for the opening of the political office. So far, however, he has nothing new in relation to his intentions for the presidential election. Any announcements on his part will be made in the spring and of course depending on the developments of the party processes. & Nbsp;
