IS IT BAD TO BECOME A PRIME MINISTER?
`It is excluded that the president of the republic uses 3rd term in
office during the upcoming elections,’ Garnik Isagulyan, president’s
adviser on national security issues told a news conference today.
Answering on the possibility in his becoming a prime minister,
Isagulyan said, `This person who has led a fight for issues of prime
importance for this country for 20 years, first of all for Karabakh
conflict regulation, will take steps that people will speak about,’
Isagulyan said. The adviser did not detail what is so bad in becoming
a prime minister. `I am sure he will have a much greater impact on the
Armenian political life and mind than a prime minister could do. I
don’t speak about a public office,’ he said.
For Isagulyan, the most acceptable and probable candidate for the
president of the republic is Serj Sargsyan. Answering to the question
that the exit of Orinats Yerkir from the ruling coalition was Serj
Sargsyan’s plan to get rid of his possible rival during presidential
elections, the adviser said that it has nothing to do with rivalry. `
God bless neither Serj Sargsyan nor any other person have said that
they want that post,’ president’s adviser said.
