Raffi Hovannisian managed to consolidate Armenian society - Andreas Ghukasyan

18:15, 22.02.2013 Region: Armenia Theme: Politics

YEREVAN.- Presidential candidate Andreas Ghukasyan who was on hunger strike during the election campaign, addressed participants of Raffi Hovannisian’s rally in the Liberty square on Friday.

He said people gathered there to express their discontent with the current situation.

“The fake elections showed that state cannot be fair, but people displayed their will and came to congratulate Raffi Hovannisian who managed to consolidate Armenian society,” he said.

But, according to him, this is not enough, because the victory will be possible only when the people are able to make the authorities cancel preliminary results of the elections.

“We have a few days to convince the ruling party that the announcement of final official results of the election will mark the start of civil disobedience and beginning of the authorities' end,” Ghukasyan said, urging those present to pass the spirit to all segments of the Armenian society.
