Raffi Hovannisian urges Armenian authorities to settle social and environmental problems in country.
Yerevan. Heritage Party Leader Raffi Hovannisian, who was meeting the residents of the town Alaverdi Thursday, urged the
Armenian authorities to create more jobs and increase salary of the employees of the Akhtala mining combine.
Hovannisian believes that those in power must share 'the billions' they receive from those minerals with the people.
"The country's minerals belong to the people. The labor of our citizens must be compensated properly. It is not slavery. The
authorities must prevent environment pollution in order our children do not suffer from cancer," the oppositionist said.
