The government must understand that people and their health are above profits
Statement by the General Secretary of AKEL A.Kyprianou
AKEL C.C. Press Office, 30th March 2020, Nicosia
AKEL has for some days now been raising before the government the issue of ending the operation of supermarkets on Sundays. This is an issue concerning the health and protection of working people in supermarkets, but consumers as well. In these conditions, the premises of supermarket must be ventilated and disinfected regularly and adequately. However, the government has so far not responded positively to this demand put forth by AKEL.
It is inconceivable that at a time when the country is going through such critical times, certain powerful private interests are preventing the assumption of self-evident measures to protect workers and people’s health. The government must understand that people and their health are above profits.
