ARFD MAY DOUBLE PRESENCE IN PARLIAMENT – PARTY HEAD
May 1, 2012 – 13:13 AMT
PanARMENIAN.Net – If 25-30 MPs from ARF Dashnaktutyun make it to
National Assembly’s 5th convocation, the party is likely to gain
majority, party leader said.
According to Vahan Hovhannisyan, ARF Dashnaktutyun MPs demonstrated
more active participation at parliament’s 4th convocation than the
representatives of other parties comprising the majority.
“We have serous chances to double our presence in parliament,” Mr.
Dwelling on ARF Dashnaktutyun’s activity in case it doesn’t gain the
desired number of votes, the party head said, “perhaps, my forecasts
are unsound, and the nation won’t vote for us. Any surprises can be
expected in case of free elections.”
He further said that it is impossible to make forecasts over public
sympathy for parties due to impossibility to name the polls conducted
in Armenia effective.
“Any election frauds by the Central Electoral Commission in favor
of the ruling Republican Party of Armenia are sure to spark wave of
discontent,” Mr. Hovhannisyan concluded.
