Presentation of ELAM

The National Popular Front (Εθνικό Λαϊκό Μέτωπο) is an extreme-rightist political party registered in 2008. In the 2016 parliamentary elections, the party obtained 13,041 votes (3.7%) and two seats.

ELAM described its ideology as "popular and social nationalism" and promotes Greek nationalism. ELAM's activities include marches against Turkish Cypriots and attacks against immigrants and leftist progressive students. Golden Dawn leader Ilias Kasidiaris has described ELAM as the "Golden Dawn of Cyprus" and its members and supporters celebrated Golden Dawn's electoral results in the May and June 2013 Greek parliamentary elections on the streets of Cyprus. Golden Dawn MP Polibios Zisimopoulos attended ELMM's march against the Turkish occupation of Northern Cyprus on 20 July 2012 and ELAM's announcement of Georgios Charalambous as its candidate for the presidency was made in the presence of two members of Golden Dawn.
Political racism of this sort is supported by about 4,000 people on Cyprus who regularly vote for ELAM. ELAM's members often rally at night in Larnaca dressed in black, waving Greek flags inciting anti-immigrant, racist violence, and some are members of the Cypriot National Guard.
