YEREVAN. – When forming opposition Heritage Party’s proportional list for Armenia’s recently-held National Assembly elections, Heritage’s Chairman Raffi Hovannisian was in favor of not taking up the list’s first spot and, instead, being 21st, and thus bringing the youth forward. The Free Democrats Party likewise shares this view, and therefore—and if need be—they are ready to yield their spots, Hovannisian himself said during Heritage’s special congress convened on Saturday.
At the same time he noted that he is currently putting the newly-elect Party Board’s final list on the table of the Board.
“But in any case, together we must create an unprecedented social and political force by [this] fall, in order to bring Armenia back,” Raffi Hovannisian stated.
He added that the people must have a presidential candidate who belongs to them.
