Representative of RPA: ARF Dashnaktsutyun and Armenian National Congress will not allow Raffi Hovannisian to obtain opposition electorate's votes.
Yerevan. The Armenian National Congress has found itself between Scylla and Charybdis: if it nominates its own candidate
for president, it will obtain only 7-10% of votes, and in case of non-participation in the elections, it will simply cease existing, Edward
Sharmazanov, Spokesperson of the ruling Republican Party of Armenia (RPA), Vice Speaker of Armenian Parliament, told journalists on
He thinks that Heritage Party Leader Raffi Hovannisian also has few chances for victory, as ARF Dashnaktsutyun and the
Armenian National Congress simply will not allow Hovannisian to obtain the opposition electorate's votes. Sharmazanov added that the
ruling party has never disturbed the potential candidates for president to participate in the race, and all the accusations against the
torpedoing of the political competition by the ruling party are groundless. "The RPA has never been engaged in manipulations. One
should not turn politics into a comedy", he said.
