He noted that the list includes members of Heritage party, “Democratic Motherland” party, “Democratic Way” party, Conservative party, cultural figures, journalists, civil activists.

Spokesperson for the party Hovsep Khurshudyan read the list headed by Armen Martirosyan, Anahit Bakhshyan, Mesrop Movsisyan, Styopa Safaryan. Among those included in the list are blogger Izabella Abgaryan, former rector of Yerevan State Linguistic Universit Suren Zolyan, head of Armenian Consumers’ Union Armen Poghosyan.
