The Cyprus Communist Initiative has been formalised into an official body aimed at the rebuilding the workers’ and people’s movement, it emerged on Saturday.
In a statement, the initiative said it “aspires to fill the political vacuum that has existed for years in Cypriot society, and to become a rallying force for the struggles of the working class and the broader popular strata.”
The group was founded on December 2 and its board was appointed on Friday. The statute provides for a horizontal structure.
It is made up of executive secretary Christos Kourtellaris, organising secretary Leandros Savvidis, secretary general Marios Ioannou, treasurer Andri Louka and the members (alphabetically) Alexis Antoniou, Chrysanthi Epifaniou, Nicolas Nicolas, Yannis Sokratous and Maria Sokratous.
