YEREVAN. – The election campaign is continuing as “normal,” as it usually happens in Armenia.
Opposition Armenian National Movement (ANM) Party Board Chairman Ararat Zurabyan, who represents Tsarukyan Bloc in the upcoming parliamentary election in the country, stated the aforesaid at a press conference on Monday.
“The RPA [i.e. the ruling Republican Party of Armenia] is in power for over ten years,” added Zurabyan. “They had enough time to fulfill [their] promises [to the people].”
He expressed confidence that the people support Tsarukyan Bloc.
Also, Zurabyan stated that the amendments in the country’s law enable a softer regime change.
In his words, a variety of irregularities had taken place during all previous elections in Armenia, and about half of the electorate had actually voted against the incumbent authorities in the country.
“If real elections without violations are held, the authorities will get 20 to 25 percent of the votes, at best,” added Ararat Zurabyan.
Tsarukyan Bloc is led by opposition Prosperous Armenia Party Chairman and businessman MP, Gagik Tsarukyan.
The parliamentary election in Armenia will be conducted on April 2.
