and introduce its leader and the country’s President Serzh Sargsyan as
the candidate for presidential polls, News Armenia cites Vice Speaker
of Parliament Eduard Sharmazanov.
He denied rumours that Gagik Tsarukyan, leader of Prosperous Armenia,
and Serzh Sargsyan had any secret deals. Even if there were any, Gagik
Tsarukyan was a member of the Security Council, he reminds.
Disputes between the Republican Party and Prosperous Armenia happened
in May 2012. Prosperous Armenia refused to sign the memorandum on
