39% OF POPULATION OF ARMENIA WANT CHANGE OF AUTHORITY
/PanARMENIAN.Net/ Only 39% of population of Armenia support the ideas of
change of authorities, head of the Armenian Sociological Association Gevorg
Poghosian said in an interview with Novoye Vremya Armenian newspaper.
According to the returns of the survey, held by the Association in all
regions of the republic, 43.4% of the respondents do not support the idea
and 17% found it difficult to answer. “The rating of the two opposition
leaders does not exceed 30% – Artashes Geghamian (leader of National
Unification Party) has 20%, which is about twice as much as Stepan
Demirchian’s rating (Justice Bloc leader) – 10%,” G. Poghosian said. In
his words, the model of the Georgian rose revolution, when external forces
organize and sponsor authority change without hindrance, will not work out
in Armenia. “One should realize that Armenia is traditionally oriented
towards Russia, and 67% of those questioned state this,” Gevorg Poghosian
said. 1 thousand citizens of Armenia were interrogated by the Association.
