Unknown persons vandalized the banner of the Deputy Mayor Candidate for the Sotiras Antonis Koumis Municipal District in Famagusta District.

In a post on Social Media, Mr. Koumis wrote "With great sadness we saw this morning the shameful desecration of the advertising posters of my candidacy for the Deputy Mayorship of Sotiras. Such actions illustrate a lack of respect for the democratic process and the right to free expression of political views. We all realize that we are only 25 days before the elections, but any political disagreement must be expressed in a peaceful and democratic way. I can only describe the reference to my mother as unacceptable."

Marios Adamou condemns

The anti-candidate of Marios Adamos condemns the actions and vandalism in a post on Social Media.

The candidate Marios Adamou wrote "I was SURPRISED to learn this morning of the vandalism of the pre-election banners of my opponent for vice-mayor. I CONDEMN UNDEFINEDLY and WITH ABUSE such actions that have no place in a civilized society.
Those who KNOW me even at least KNOW WELL THAT I WOULD NEVER BE INVOLVED IN SUCH ACTS. I ASK THAT THE CASE BE INVESTIGATED AND THE NATURAL AND POSSIBLY ETHICAL OFFENDERS ARE IDENTIFIED. AS AN INDICATION OF SYMPATHY I WILL BE TAKING MY OWN BANNERS DOWN FOR A CORRESPONDING PERIOD OF TIME."
