YEREVAN. – Hraparak newspaper of Armenia writes: [Armenian PM] Nikol Pashinyan's meeting with 3 candidates ahead of presidential elections in Artsakh has caused a stir in Artsakh.
Particularly, among [Artsakh FM and presidential candidate] Masis Mayilian's teammates, among the Artsakh of Tomorrow party supporting him, as to why Pashinyan is meeting with former government representatives, "revolutionizing them." They mean [Artsakh ex-PM] Arayik Harutyunyan, though the meeting was first and foremost a message to [presidential candidate] Vitali Balasanyan—in terms of “not to notice” [him].
In Artsakh, even in the teams of candidates with whom the RA Prime Minister met, there is a view that this is a process of interfering with the Artsakh elections.
