The leader of the Third Republic party Victor Dallakyan could not be included in the top ten of the electoral list of the alliance made by the former Armeniaa Minister of Defense of Seyran Ohanyan and the former Foreign Minister Vartan Oskanian. This was told by the former Defense Minister of the Nagorno Karabakh Republic Samvel Babayan in his interview with Armenian News - NEWS.am.
Referring to the statement of Victor Dallakyan, that Samvel Babayan met with him and presented the pre-election list of the block where Dallakyan was not included in the top ten, the former NKR Defense Minister, said: "It wasn’t a final list; it was a draft."
To the question why Viktor Dallakyan, who joined the unit from the outset, was not involved into the top ten, Babayan said: "His name could not be in the top ten. Our party members unite to struggle for a victory. He could not fight for a place in the top five. But, if he just wants to get a pension, we explain to him, here is not a place, where he can get a pension.
According to Samvel Babayan, everyone should refrain from ambitions for the sake of Armenian and the Armenian people. "If a person says, that he will be among the top, we shouldn’t get crossways with him," he added.
It is worthy to mention, that first it was Vartan Oskanian, Seyran Ohanyan, and Viktor Dallakyan, and the head of the Democratic Party of Armenia Aram Sargsyan who announced about the formation of the alliance. Later, the head of the party National Self-Determination Paruyr Hayrikyan joined them. However, the last three left the block.
Later, the party Heritage announced about its readiness to form an alliance with Vartan Oskanian and Seyran Ohanyan. The former Minister of Defense Seyran Ohanyan, the ex-foreign minister, the head of the party Unity Vartan Oskanian, and the first Foreign Minister of the independent Armenia, the leader of Heritage party Raffi Hovhannisyan on February 13 signed a memorandum on participation in the upcoming parliamentary elections in an electoral alliance.
