YEREVAN. – Past daily of the Republic of Armenia (RA) writes: The agenda of the upcoming [snap] parliamentary elections expected in the RA [on June 20] could not be left out of the attention of the Artsakh [(Nagorno-Karabakh)] society (…).
According to Past newspaper’s information, those in Artsakh are quite optimistic about the snap elections envisioned in Armenia, considering that, with that, there is an opportunity to finally get rid of [acting PM] Nikol Pashinyan.
Although the Artsakh authorities—and first of all [President] Arayik Harutyunyan—have concerns due to this situation because their power will also be directly questioned after the change of power in the RA, the Artsakh authorities still refrain from providing serious support to the [incumbent] RA authorities.
They are concerned that [their] open support for Armenia’s authorities could lead to new domestic political developments inside Artsakh, whereas in the current sensitive situation, this could be fatal for them.
