YEREVAN. – Hraparak daily of Armenia writes: After [opposition MPs] Vahe Hakobyan and Ishkhan Saghatelyan were dismissed, the opposition unanimously announced their resignation from parliamentary positions. (...).
The only oppositionist [remaining in this regard] is Taguhi Tovmasyan from the WH [(“With Honor”)] Faction, who heads the standing committee on human rights.
According to our information, for several hours yesterday the MPs of the [opposition] "Armenia" Faction were negotiating with Taguhi Tovmasyan in Vardenis, trying to convince her to join the opposition colleagues, thereby creating a political crisis. They even engaged [ex-President] Serzh Sargsyan in that matter, but Taguhi remained adamant and refused, whereas she became the chair of that committee with the quota of the "Armenia" bloc, according to the D'Hondt formula; "With Honor" did not have [enough number of MPs to have the right to chair] a committee [in parliament].
