"If the National Assembly ratifies the Armenian-Turkish Protocols as
they are now, the Armenian Revolutionary Federation [Dashnaktsutyun, or
ARF-D] will fight for a change in the country’s governing leadership,"
member of ARF-D Bureau, Leader of ARF-D parliamentary faction Vahan
Hovhannisyan stated at a press conference today.

Hovhannisyan also said that even if the National Assembly ratifies
the Armenian-Turkish Protocols with reservations, it’s all the same,
their party will not join them since it doesn’t think that those
reservations will be in line with the changes ARF-D proposed earlier.

However, Hovhannisyan didn’t exclude the possibility of discussing
proposals for serious changes.

As for ARF-D’s protest demonstration against the Protocols,
Hovhannisyan stated that "holding a rally" is not an end in and of
itself and, at this time, they chose the method of their struggle
which is most suitable for the present situation.

Accordingly, ARF-D is carrying out its "home to home" action, working
with members of parliament in joint communities, and realizing its
protest against the Protocols.
