Yerevan September 17
Tatevik Shagunyan. Candidate for mayors from the party "Prosperous Armenia" Naira Zohrabyan accused the Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan that he and the candidate for mayors from his party Hayk Marutyan have crossed all the limits of what is permitted and conduct an election campaign using "black technologies".
During the pre-election meeting with the inhabitants of Malatia-Sebastia, Naira Zohrabyan stated that they every day invite Hayk Marutyan to a discussion, but he is afraid and avoids, since it is easier to play the mayor behind Nikol Pashinyan than as a man, tet-a-tete talk to her about the problems of Yerevan, and not on political topics. " "If you are a man, then let's discuss, what are you afraid of? Enough to hide behind the feys and behind Pashinyan: although on the other hand, what should he discuss with me on the political platform, if he does not understand anything in Yerevan, and just wants to turn the capital into "Yerevan production," she said.
Zohrabyan said that in the distance from Marutyan she is not a "guest performer" and regardless of the results of the elections she is not going to leave anywhere. For example in Prague, where Hayk Marutyan owns five apartments. Naira Zohrabyan was barely able to restrain her anger and did not choose expressions, responding to accusations that they constantly fly to their address, that the "ears" of the second president of Armenia Robert Kocharyan are visible behind the party "Prosperous Armenia". At the same time, she said, the situation is exactly the opposite: "Enough to declare that we are connected with him: it is you who brought him back into politics, it is you who released him from prison and it was you, every day talking about him, busy with his PR. Enough! It is in your proportional list that the close and dear Serzh Sargsyan is a relative of his adviser Zori Balayan, a godson and a relative of Mikael Minasyan (Serge Sargsyan's son-in-law – ed.). And enough to keep people for idiots, to deceive the people, "she said, with a stormy ovation.
