YEREVAN.- They have already decided that the Deputy Speaker will be the representative of the Prosperous Armenia party (PAP). Edmon Marukyan, head of the “Bright Armenia” faction, told journalists.
“Let the people be the judge. What should we do? They tell us to negotiate with the PAP. The authorities are trying to shift the burden on us.
There is a public dispute, there are 2 candidates, there is competition, this is a policy. Let the political majority decide who they choose. Therefore, in my address to the PAP, I noted that I'm not fighting with you. You have your own candidate and it is illogical to ask you to vote for us, ”said Marukyan.
He noted that their appeals on the issue of electing a deputy speaker were addressed to the “My Step” bloc.
