"The statements by the Republican Party's court parrot Eduard Sharmazanov zombify the Armenian public," David Hakobyan, Leader of the Marxist Party of Armenia, told media, Thursday.
Earlier, RPA Spokesperson, Vice Speaker of the Armenian Parliament Eduard Sharmazanov said that the incumbent president Serzh Sargsyan is out of competition and during the upcoming presidential election the fight will be for the second position.
The Marxist is sure that such statements are nothing but an attempt to mislead the public in order the "dynasty of the Vikings ruling in Armenia" retains power. David Hakobyan announced that he will run for the president. The politician is sure that he will be a serious rival to the incumbent president. As for his participation in the additional parliamentary elections from the single-mandate constituency No 1 in Avan community, Yerevan, he said: "I yield my
position to Taron Margaryan and his team." He is sure that the voting outcome is predetermined.
To recall, the Republican Party nominated Deputy Head of the Yerevan Register, Yerevan Mayor's brother-in-law Robert Sargsyan from the above single-mandate constituency vs. Stepan Safaryan, Secretary of Heritage Party.
