Marat Terterov: Armenia’s long term security will be better served by strengthening economic security, rather than defining national security on the basis of the Tsarist Russian catch-cry “armiya i flot”
Heritage Party Leader Raffi Hovannisian will not participate in the elections to the Elders' Council of Yerevan. Hovannisian himself said this during a press conference in Liberty Square on Wednesday.
He said that Heritage is already discussing the possible list of participations in the elections and will make a statement on March 15. He added that the representatives of Heritage and Armenian National Congress are already negotiating on joint participation in the elections to the Elders' Council of Yerevan, however, the leaders of the parties have not met yet.
Hovannisian has been on hunger strike since March 10 to protest against the presidential election results. He says that this action will last much more than 15 days. He hopes that the authorities will come to senses and admit the people's victory.
