Gagik Tsarukyan hints at discrepancies among 4 non-coalition parliamentary forces

 Armenia needs wide consolidation of the society and the political forces to settle numerous problems, Leader of the Prosperous Armenia Party (PAP) Gagik Tsarukyan said during a meeting with the Armenian National Congress (ANC) representatives. 

The ANC delegation included Levon Zurabyan, Head of the ANC Faction, Aram Manukyan, Secretary of the ANC Faction, and Avetis Avagyan, representative of Levon Ter-Petrosyan's Office. The PAP delegation included Vartan Oskanian, member of the PAP Faction, and Gagik Tsarukyan. Tsarukyan said that no person or no political party can solve the existing problems alone. "I have repeatedly said that I need no posts. We only want to change the situation in the country by joint efforts", said Tsarukyan. 

Levon Zurabyan, in turn, pointed out that the country is in a serious crisis and Serzh Sargsyan's regime is to blame for it. He stressed the need to form a legitimate power by means of early parliamentary and presidential elections. Tsarukyan replied that the most important thing is that the four forces - ANC, PAP, ARFD and Heritage - should closely cooperate. Even if there are some discrepancies, they should be removed through full-fledged debates, he said.  

Following the meeting, Zurabyan told the journalists that the PAP and the ANC have no discrepancies in conducting the vote of no confidence in the Government. The given issue should be tackled in the format of the 4 forces, he said. Zurabyan considers the vote of no confidence as an instrument of the 4 political forces' consolidation. He stressed that the candidacy for the premier's post has not been discussed. For the moment, the 4 forces think that it is necessary to work together and to determine the problems to be tackled by the new government.      

To recall, earlier Gagik Tsarukyan met with ARF Dashnaktsutyun members Hrant Margaryan, Armen Rustamyan and Aghvan Vardanyan. The 4 non-coalition parliamentary forces are holding debates to form a single political agenda and conduct a vote of no confidence in the Armenian Government.
