ArmInfo. "External factor may play a decisive role in election
campaign and in post-election processes", Leader of National Democratic
Union Vazgen Manukyan told ArmInfo correspondent. According to him,
the importance of the external factor may increase after probable
falsification of the coming election results, if the nation comes out
to streets. "In such a situation the external forces may support any
of the sides. For example, they supported Saakashvili and prevented
Shevardnadze from use of force in Georgia. In Azerbaijan during
parliamentary election the opposition was unified, fought against the
authority, but there was an impression that the external forces were
interested in keeping a steady power held by Aliyev.

But as far as I see, the outcome of all the elections in out country
is defined with no special consideration of the external factor",
V. Manukyan said.

The politician also added that, naturally, there are many external
forces that would like to have "insider" in power in Armenia. However,
no special interference in the internal affairs of the country has
been observed yet, not counting the financial side, where many things
are unclear.
