YEREVAN. – Republic party’s decision on ceasing its membership in the opposition Armenian National Congress (ANC) was predictable, ANC member, former PM Hrant Bagratyan told Armenian

“When any party which makes a decision to quit, it is a loss. However, I should say that the bloc will survive. As a matter of fact, new people also join us. As for the Republic, it was predictable for this force,” he claimed.

Asked how the party’s decision will influence the ANC, Bagratyan said if asked six months earlier, he would have responded negatively, but now he just states the fact. In addition he has no fears that Republic leader Aram Sargsyan will unite opposition powers from the ANC around him.

As Armenian has earlier informed, the party made a decision on Friday to quit the ANC. Prior to it, its leader has claimed on rejecting MP mandate and did not rule out leaving the bloc.
