The Church joined a number of parties, groups, movements, football associations and individuals yesterday in announcing support for one of the two presidential candidates in this Sunday’s election run-off. Following the removal of former ally President Tassos Papadopoulos from the election race, Archbishop Chrysostomos turned his support to DISY’s Ioannis Kasoulides.“We have already agreed the framework within which we will move on education and without reservation, as the Church we advise our people to vote en masse for Mr Kasoulides and we are sure of the cooperation we will have in the new five-year term,” said the archbishop.
“Kasoulides agrees with the wishes of the church to have a say in education issues because if we lose our children who represent the hope of the future of this place, then nothing can save us,” he said.
The other presidential hopeful Demetris Christofias said he was saddened by the church’s decision to take sides. The AKEL candidate said he expected the archbishop to stick to announcements of love and unity and that’s it”. He accused DISY of taking the political climate back decades by spreading rumours that the AKEL leader would end religious education in schools if elected, something which he categorically denied.
