The incumbent authorities haven’t done anything in Yerevan and Armenia’s provinces for three consecutive years. Vahe Hakobyan—member of “Armenia” bloc which is running in the snap parliamentary elections set for June 20, leader of Reviving Armenia Party and former governor of Syunik Province—said this during a campaign meeting in Sevan.
“The authorities lied and then falsified for a year, and later they simply threatened. We’re witnessing how they are taking people to the rally [of Pashinyan-ed.] in Yerevan. The whole state apparatus is trying to create the impression that Pashinyan has supporters. There are supporters, but they are few I number, and this will be proved on June 20,” Hakobyan declared and explained the symbolism of the number 24 (the number of the bloc on electoral list), that is, 24 hours, 24 working days, Robert Kocharyan became Prime Minister of Armenia 24 years ago. “The important thing now is to make sure there are no clashes,” Hakobyan added.
