National Unity Party leader Artashes Gegamyan said in Yerevan today
that the opposition will keep on struggling for changing the Armenian
authorities “by constitutional means”. Artashes Gegamyan, whom the
police think to be one of the organizers of the disorders that took
place in Yerevan on the night of 12-13 April said this at a briefing
at the Armenian National Assembly today.

He said that the opposition is now discussing the tactics of its
further actions. Artashes Gegamyan said that the dispersal of the
rally by the police “has again demonstrated that the Armenian
leadership leads us to the loss of statehood, and the change of power
is the only way out of this situation”.

The leader of the National Unity party said that after the dispersal
of the rally representatives of the law-enforcement bodies broke the
doors of the party’s headquarters and seized all documents.

“If Robert Kocharyan had read all those analytical articles which were
among the documents he would have immediately resigned,” Artashes
Gegamyan stated.
