The Communist Party of Malta congratulates AKEL of Cyprus
The Communist Party of Malta congratulates the Workers’ Progressive Party of Cyprus, AKEL for managing to obtain good results in the local elections held on December 18th, in spite of many difficulties.
In coalition with other progressive parties, AKEL had 18 mayors elected, 8 of which are AKEL party members.
AKEL’s Secretary General Andros Kyprianou said in a statement that, “it was a rewarding result in the face of the war being waged by the opposition parties to isolate AKEL and despite the problems that Cyprus is facing”.
The Party not only kept its position but also increased the percentage of votes over that achieved in the last General Elections. Compared to the last local elections held in 2006, AKEL increased its seats by five.
The Communist Party of Malta sent a fraternal message congratulating AKEL for the positive results achieved.
