Haroutyun Arakelyan, chairman of Ramkavar Azatakan
Party (RAP), is indignant at Ara Abrahamyan, the
President of World Congress of Armenians and the Union
of the Armenians of Russia.
`I shall pursuit him to the end’, declared Haroutyun
Arakelyan in the club `Urbat’ today.
RAP is no longer a member of the World Congress of

Arakelyan added that they really respected and had
close ties with Ara Abrahamyan’s family and his
Mr. Arakelyan didn’t say which party they will join in
the 2007 Parliamentary elections. He only noted that
they currently cooperate with Samvel Babayan and it is
upon the party’s congress to decide.
He claims that ideological struggle is apparent in the
political field and the political mentality has not
developed in the country since 1988.
