Touching upon the domestic political situation in Armenia last week and the discussion on the paths to restore constitutional order along with the leaders of Prosperous Armenia Party and Homeland Party during an interview on Facebook today, representative of the Supreme Body of the Armenian Revolutionary Federation-Dashnaktsutyun political party Ishkhan Saghatelyan said the ARF-D and the two other political parties have created a task force that will develop a roadmap for their actions.
“We view snap parliamentary elections as the major and primary aim and the way out of the created situation,” Saghatelyan stated.
The ARF-D failed to cross the necessary threshold during the last snap parliamentary elections. When asked why the political party is demanding snap parliamentary elections now and if it will succeed this time, Saghatelyan said the ultimate objective is not to succeed or not. “The leaders of the people’s movement in 2018 set demands. People wanted to live in a safer and more developed country and receive higher salaries, but after two years, the incumbent authorities haven’t fulfilled these demands, there are no systemic reforms. Instead, there is a political crisis and a management crisis. The ARF-D finds that the country needs a qualitatively new government that can be formed through elections,” Saghatelyan said.
Last week, the representative of the Supreme Body of the Armenian Revolutionary Federation-Dashnaktsutyun political party in Armenia, leader of Prosperous Armenia Party Gagik Tsarukyan and leader of Homeland Party Artur Vanetsyan had a meeting to discuss ‘the domestic political situation and the paths to restore constitutional order’, issued a joint press release and emphasized that the to-be-created task force will develop a joint action plan and a roadmap to ensure wide consolidation.
