"I see no sense in hindering the rally headed by the first president
of Armenia, Levon Ter-Petrosyan, that will take place on October
26," Viktor Dallakyan, an independent Armenian MP, told ArmInfo
correspondent.

According to him, as a rule, if one tries to hinder a rally, this
causes the opposite process. The attempt of the political forces to
artificially hinder the rally allowed by the Yerevan City Hall may
have negative consequences, the MP noted. He added that a tradition
should be formed in the country, according to which the constitutional
laws on holding of rallies and processions should work.

"I don’t think that any incidents may take place during the rally,
which will disturb the security of our country," V.Dallakyan said. He
thinks that Levon Ter-Petrosyan’s team, which has a great political
experience, may use the fact of the rally’s suppression for its
own interests. V. Dallakyan also emphasized that after his speech
during the festive reception in Marriott-Armenia Hotel and his
recent meetings with different political forces, during the rally
L Ter-Petrosyan will declare about his nomination in the coming
presidential election. Otherwise, his steps will not fit within the
frames of political actions.

To recall, the rally of opposition forces under the chairmanship of
the first Armenian president Levon Ter Petrosyan, "Republic" Party
Leader Aram Sarksyan and Leader of "People’s Party" Stepan Demirchyan
will take place on October 26. On the same day, the Republican Party
of Armenia organizes a concert "Gold autumn".
