Aug 04 2007
YEREVAN, AUGUST 4, NOYAN TAPAN. The July 26 meeting of leaders
of several opposition forces on the initiative of the chairman of
the National Self-Determination Union (NSU) Paruyr Hayrikian was a
dramatized one, whose purpose was to demonstrate the opportunity
of uniting the opposition forces at the upcomimg presidential
elections. The spokeswoman for People’s Party of Armenia (PPA)
Ruzan Khachatrain expressed this opinion at the August 3 press
conference. She said that during the 2008 presidential elections
PPA will cooperate with those political forces that will share their
opinions about the current authorities.
In her words, "the seemingly rapid activities of the Armenian
authorities recently are false democratic steps". She noted that
if the authorities had been concerned about the country’s future,
an end would have been put to "manifestations of hooliganizm and
arbitrariness". As proof of what she said, R. Khachatrian mentioned
the name of Gyumri mayor Vardan Ghukasian, noting that Gyumri has
become one of the criminal centers because of him.
"If it continues like this, Armenia will soon be like Gyumri,"
