Haykakan Zhamanak: Prosperous Armenia Party leader suggests former FM to renounce parliamentary mandate
YEREVAN. – Prosperous Armenia Party (PAP) Chairman Gagik Tsarukyan cautioned former FM Vartan Oskanian, who is third in the PAP’s National Assembly member list, that should a coalition be formed between the Republican Party and the PAP, Oskanian will have to give up his MP seat, Haykakan Zhamanak daily writes.
“But Oskanian, according to our information, told Tsarukyan that he would leave the Party, but he will not renounce the mandate and he would work in the Parliament as an independent MP.
According to our information, Tsarukyan also made such proposal to [Chairman] Hmayak Hovhannisyan [of the Politologists’ Union of Armenia], who is ninth in the PAP’s proportional [election] list and is in fact voted in as a deputy. There are rumors, however, that Hovhannisyan likewise has no intentions of giving up his parliamentary mandate under any condition.
Oskanian and Hovhannisyan, and their numerous supporters are still hopeful that the PAP would not be a part of the coalition,” Haykakan Zhamanak writes.
