Cyprus Articles [ Mayor calls greens enemy of Paphos ]

Mayor calls greens enemy of Paphos

A FURIOUS row has erupted between the Mayor of Paphos, Savvas Vergas, and the newly appointed assistant general-secretary of the Green Party, Paphos local, Andreas Evlavis.

The war of words was sparked during a live programme on Radio Paphos yesterday morning, which saw Vergas refer to the Greens as an ‘enemy of Paphos.’

"I have never been spoken to by the mayor like that. He was completely out of order and disrespectful. Neither I nor the Greens are an enemy of Paphos, we love our town and we have the right to our opinions,” Evlavis said.

The row blew up over Evlavis’ comments that the Green Party were unhappy over work on the second phase of the upgrading project of Paphos seafront in Kato Paphos, which will see a new seaside promenade created in front of the luxury hotels in Kato Paphos.

Evlavis insists that the Greens have never been against a solution to enable people to walk in front of the hotels, and in fact pointed out that for the last decade the Green Party has been putting pressure on hotels to stop blocking seaside pathways. He added: "The municipality didn’t help with this quest, and its only now that they are using it as an excuse to build a sea wall, which is only two or three metres from the breaking waves."

"It’s not logical or legal," said Evlavis. "The protective zone is 50 metres from the shoreline so obviously if you’re building a wall here, something is wrong."

According to Evlavis, Vergas stressed the wall was included on the plans for the area, which were all approved. "It’s not fair of the mayor to attack us and say we are enemies, we don’t agree. We want a simple, better quality of life for everyone, and not to see concrete everywhere in the name of pedestrianisation."

Evlavis suggested that the walkway could have been made with eco-friendly material.

“ It’s so huge, just like the area in the harbour. A vast expanse of concrete is not necessary,” he said.

"I am very upset with the mayor. We all have the right to our opinions and we don’t all need to agree. But we live here and love it. His comments were an attack on us and I will not give the right to someone to treat me like this, we are not enemies."

“I was voted into my position and I want to give a voice to my supporters, the mayor should respect us an environmental team,” he added.

Meanwhile, Vergas said during his interview, that it seemed to him that the Green Party was against every public works project in Paphos.

“They don’t seem to want any building in Paphos town and whenever the municipality start a project Mr. Evlavis is standing in front, opposing the move,” said Vergas.

Vergas has previously told the Cyprus Mail of his intention to improve and enhance the areas of Paphos, which he believes need upgrading work or attention. He also spoke of his hopes, in his capacity as mayor, to make the town an even more beautiful and enjoyable place to live, and to visit.
