YEREVAN. – If Serzh Sargsyan today gave a false oath on the Holy
Bible and with-Catholicos of All Armenian-Karekin II’s complicity,
I do not recognize that oath and his authority. Opposition Heritage
Party Chairman, former FM Raffi Hovannisian-who was declared runner-up
to the winner, incumbent President Serzh Sargsyan, as a result of
the presidential election that was conducted on February 18, but who
claims to be the real winner in the vote-stated this on Tuesday at
capital city Yerevan’s Liberty Square.
“There is no falsity and lie here, at Liberty Square, but rather stand
the Armenian people, who triumphed in the February 18 presidential
elections. All politicians are nothing before the will of the people,
and that will must be fulfilled,” Hovannisian said.
In his words, Sargsyan has time until at 6pm to recognize the triumph
of the people and, in this connection, to congratulate the people at
“Our homeland, our people are liberated from your lie and illegitimate
authority. They already have triumphed, we are your slaves no longer!”
Raffi Hovannisian stressed, addressing Serzh Sargsyan.
