Republican Party of Armenia will form the new government alone for the first time since 1998, Eduard Sharmazanov, RPA Spokesperson, Vice Speaker of the Armenian Parliament, said at the meeting of the RPA Executive Body.
"We will form the government together with the people at least on 3 May," Sharmazanov promised. As for Orinats Yerkir Party's withdrawal from the ruling coalition, Sharmazanov said he respects the Party's decision. "Coalitions do not last forever. We respect Orinats Yerkir Party's decision and believe that our cooperation was fruitful," the vice speaker said. Nevertheless, he said, there are political forces that step into the same river for many times (Orinats Yerkir Party has several time joined the authorities and the opposition since its establishment - editor's note).
