YEREVAN. – The last parliamentary elections in Armenia recorded
substantial changes, European People’s Party (EPP) President Wilfried
Martens stated during his video message addressed to the delegates of
Saturday’s 14th congress of the country’s ruling Republican Party

He reaffirmed EPP’s complete trust in RPA Chairman and incumbent
President Serzh Sargsyan, and stressed the EPP Eastern Partnership
Summit that was held recently in Armenia’s capital city Yerevan.

`Democratic reforms are a challenge, a difficult road, especially for
Armenia. But you have put your country on the right track. According
to all international observations, the last parliamentary elections
[in Armenia] recorded substantial changes. I believe the presidential
elections [to be held on February 18, 2013] will reaffirm these
changes,’ Martens said addressing Serzh Sargsyan.

`Dear RPA colleague, you can rely on the support of the EPP. Your
agenda of reforms is the only reliable one to carry out serious and
lasting changes in Armenia,’ the EPP President stressed.

`We all are Europeans. Armenia belongs to Europe. RPA has proved the
fact of being a leader of change. The Armenian people have trusted you
in making changes in the country. I do not doubt that in two months
the Armenian people will make the right choice to carry out future
changes and to consolidate democracy in the country,’ Wilfried Martens
