GORIS. – Opposition Heritage party MP Zaruhi Postanjyan and party activists were hampered by the Syunik Region police to establish headquarters. Those people who agreed to grant territory for headquarter establishment in Syunik city asked to return the territory back under pressures, Heritage informs Armenian News-NEWS.am.
“It is obvious that those citizens yielded to the authorities’ pressure. Postanjyan called to the Governor Suren Khachatryan, who is included in the ruling Republican Party of Armenia’s (RPA) election list for clarifications, instead she heard curses.
The Heritage condemns strictly behavior of the Governor and invites attention of the Central Electoral Committee and law enforcement agents to the aforesaid fact, demanding to be provided with equal conditions for all the political powers,” party’s statement reads.
Opposition Heritage Party is a liberal party founded in 2002. The leader is the first Armenian Foreign Minister Raffi Hovannisian.
Heritage and Free Democrats Party are running for the parliament with joint proportional list.
The proportional list of the party includes members of extra-parliamentary opposition Free Democrats Party and civil society representatives.
