CHANGE OF POWER IDEA WITH MOBILIZING ROLE IN ARMENIA SINCE 1992 – MANVEL SARGSYAN
16:50 * 02.12.14
Manvel Sargsyan, Director of the Armenian Center for National and
International Studies (ACNIS), believes the following formula has
developed in Armenia since the country gained independence: the
pre-election coalition’s post-election struggle.
No other political activities are perceived as a policy.
“One idea that is playing a mobilizing role – a change of power –
has existed in Armenia since 1992,” he said at a discussion at ACNIS.
In 2012, political parties launched a struggle against the criminal
and oligarchic system.
“Armenia declared itself a rule-of-law state, which is a compulsory
course for all the citizens,” Mr Sargsyan said.
For the past 23 years, the problem of coming to power has been
accompanied by that of system reforms. If society is really seeking
system reforms, society itself must carry out them without placing
hopes on political parties.
