PAKRADOUNIAN TO AL-MANAR (HEZBOLLAH): ARMENIANS MIGHT NOT VOTE HEAVILY FOR MURR
May 27 2009
Tashnak MP Hagop Pakradounian said on Wednesday that the Change and
Reform ticket in the Metn district will win six seats, noting that
MP Michel Murr might break the list thanks to the Armenian support.
Speaking to Al-Manar, Pakradounian noted, however, that there was
some nervousness within the Armenian bases over the support for
Murr. He said that some Murr spokesmen were assailing the Armenians,
"and therefore I cannot guarantee that the popular bases will vote
in favor of Murr in an intensive way."
While noting that the Tashnak’s leadership will vote for Murr, he
said he wishes this leadership would not change its mind at the last
moment. "We just hoped MP Murr and his son, Defense Minister Elias
Murr, denied what they were quoted as saying against the Armenians,"
Pakradounian said that the Tashnak party will decide whom to vote
for on the list, after he discusses it with Free Patriotic Movement
leader MP Michel Aoun two days before elections.
