It’s early to seek a leader of the political opposition. This is what Victor Soghomonyan, head of the Office of second President of Armenia Robert Kocharyan, told Yerevan Today.
When told that the political opposition is not unified, but people are already indicating names (leader of the Adekvat political party considers Mikael Minasyan the best leader of the opposition), Victor Soghomonyan said the following: “First of all, I would like to congratulate Adekvat political party on its foundation. In his recent interview, President Kocharyan expressed his opinion rather objectively and said there will be centers of gravitation that won’t let the government steer the wheel in the wrong direction.
As far as the search for the leader of the political opposition is concerned, I must say it is early, if not too early. There are oppositional centers and we continue to witness the formation of those centers, and there are no shared opinions on leaders. We need to work and perform the function that I already mentioned, and that is to do everything possible to make sure the government doesn’t doom the country.”
