GAGIK TSARUKYAN URGES RESIDENTS OF YEREVAN “NOT TO YIELD TO PRESSURE AND TO VOTE FOR THE ONE THEY TRUST”
Friday, May 3, 02:49
At today’s rally in Liberty Square, Leader of the Prosperous Armenia
Party (PAP), oligarch Gagik Tsarukyan urged the residents of Yerevan
to take an active part in the May 5 elections to the Elders’ Council
“Don’t be afraid of anybody, especially those trying to intimidate
you. Those people fear themselves to lose their posts as a result
of fair elections. Don’t yield to pressure and vote for the one you
trust. I have obligations to nobody, except you. To achieve success
on May 5, we need consolidation around the professional, honest,
active team of the Prosperous Armenia Party”, said Tsarukyan.
He believes that today Yerevan needs a highly responsible mayor and
municipality employees, who will respond to the applications and
requests of the citizens.
Naira Zohrabyan, Secretary of the PAP Faction, said that the voters
should listen exclusively to their conscience when deciding for whom
to vote during the elections to the Elders’ Council of Yerevan. She
thinks that it is time to change the desperate situation in the
republic. By supporting the PAP on May 5, the citizens will launch
radical changes in the country.
The rally was followed by a procession to Republic Square.
To recall, 6 parties and 1 bloc will participate in the elections
to the Elders’ Council of Yerevan: Republican Party of Armenia,
Prosperous Armenia Party, Orinats Yerkir Party, Armenian National
Congress, Arakelutyun Party, ARF Dashnaktsutyun Party, and Barev
Yerevan Bloc. The elections will be held on 5 May 2013. Experts expect
a low turnout.
