Disy will remain loyal to the principles and values the party was founded on, party leader Averof Neophytou said on Sunday, during the memorial service of Glafcos Clerides, former President of the Republic and Disy founder.

Neophytou was speaking at the memorial service at the Theou Sofias church at the presence of President Nicos Anastasiades, House President Annita Demetriou, cabinet members and DISY MPs.

“Clerides founded Disy in 1976 based on four principles and values. The fight for unification, to establish ties to the west, a free and powerful economy, and self-respecting citizens,” Neophytou said.

The party continues to move forward with the same goals and a unified Disy “guarantees the safe and stable path for our country,” Neophytou remarked.

Clerides’ daughter Kaity said the unity of the party was important, calling on all its members to vote for the Disy candidate. “This is what my father would have wanted.”

Making a speech during the service, Takis Clerides, who served as finance minister during Clerides’ presidency said the late president never thought of the personal cost he would suffer, but rather, focused on how to serve the country.

“We need great leaders, that can inspire people and progression. Leaders who are not afraid of the difficult decisions,” he noted.
