ARMENIA’S RAMKAVAR AZATAKAN HAS NO ‘ENEMIES’
At his Aug. 19 meeting with journalists, the newly appointed chairman
of the Ramkavar Azatakan Party of Armenia Harutyun Arakelyan addressed
a number of issues, including domestic political developments.
“Armenia’s authorities and the Armenian National Congress (ANC)
have decided on the forthcoming elections beforehand. There is
a tendency to monopoly,” he said. Under the circumstances, the
extra-parliamentary political forces, including Ramkavar Azatakan,
will find it most difficult to succeed in the forthcoming elections.
“We do not rule out the possibility of joint participation in the
elections. The party’s Armenian board are discussing this possibility.
I can name some parties with which we can jointly take part in the
elections. They are the Heritage party, Armenian Revolutionary
Federation Dashnaktsutyun, as well as the parties led by Aram
Karapetyan and Tigran Karapetyan,” Arakelyan said. He pointed out
that the Ramkavar Azatakan Party of Armenia has no “enemies” among
Armenia’s political forces.
