European Elections 2019: Cyprus needs the EU more than ever, DISY President says

Cyprus needs the EU more than ever, President of the Democratic Rally (DISY) Averof Neofytou said on Sunday, and pointed out the importance of voting in today’s European Elections.

Speaking after casting his vote at a polling station in Nicosia, Neofytou said that today is the time of the European Union, the moment when all of us should weigh the benefits of our participation, but also the responsibility of our abstention.

It is wrong to take the benefits for granted and believe the dangers are inexistent. Our country does not have the luxury of turning back, it does not have the luxury of being marginalized again, especially today. Our country needs Europe more than ever. The message should be loud and clear that Cyprus belongs to the countries with a clear European direction and does not belong to the countries that are fighting against Europe and European integration, he said.
